Friday Finds for Writers

Treasure Chest
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.

  • “How to Pitch a Story to an Editor in the Media”–some advice published over on xoJane. (Not new, but seen this week via Rebecca Klempner)
  • “On the Use of Sensitivity Readers in Publishing”: views from a a writer, a reader, and a publisher. On Literary Hub.
  • “On Being Translated Back to Myself”: terrific essay by Boris Fishman, an American writer born in Minsk.
  • Reading this piece by my friend Lisa Greene over on The Wisdom Daily, I was struck anew with the realization that not all meaningful writing is necessarily published writing.
  • And, as per usual, you can find my weekly set of Jewish literary links over on the My Machberet blog.
  • Have a good—and safe—weekend, everyone, however you are spending it.
