Friday Finds for Writers
“At a luncheon hosted by the Publishers Advertising and Marketing Association (PAMA) at the New York Times headquarters [last week], New York Times Book Review editor Pamela Paul explained the paper’s vision for the future of its books coverage.” If you couldn’t be there (lucky me–I was!), this Publishers Weekly account is the next-best thing.
In this Q&A occasioned by a recent visit to Harvard University, Jennifer Egan “talked about honing her skills as an oral historian, writing her books by hand, and learning how to let a story live.”
Consider this advice on what not to do: Jennie Nash offers “9 Ways to Ruin a Writing Conference.” (Thanks to Lisa Romeo for the lead on this one.)
I’m always a little slow to immerse myself in these sort of things, but if you’re eager for latest literary app, check out The New Yorker‘s new Poetry Bot.
And, as per usual, you’ll find a fresh set of #JewLit links over on My Machberet.
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
