Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Attention, short-story writers—you may find some useful tips in Robert Kerbeck’s “Emerging from the Slush: 10 Tips for Writers” over on the Tahoma Literary Review site. (Actually, most of what’s there applies to writers/writing in other genres, too.)
  • “Paul Muldoon, who for a decade has served as the poetry editor of The New Yorker, will step down, the magazine announced on Wednesday. His successor will be Kevin Young, who moved to New York from Atlanta last year to become the director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.” The New York Times reports.
  • “Want to support an author’s or illustrator’s new book but can’t afford to buy it? Here’s what you can do.” Great post from Debbie Ridpath Ohi (via @LawrenceSchimel).
  • A refresher on the “who vs. whom” question.
  • “What’s the Difference Between Marketing and Publicity?” A team of book publicists takes on this question for Literary Hub.
  • Have a great weekend, everyone!
