Friday Finds for Writers
“22 Ways to Teach and Learn About Poetry With The New York Times” (via @DonShare).
Mikhail Baryshnikov remembers his first meeting with poet Joseph Brodsky (thanks to the Harriet blog for this one).
And another poetry-focused find: “The Language of Poets: 10 Notable Forms,” in which Nick Ripatrazone summarizes “10 of the most intriguing forms” in Edward Hirsch’s The Essential Poet’s Glossary.
“But my thesis was not a book. I was almost halfway through the program before I learned to appreciate the difference.” An important point from Colin Hosten on the Brevity blog (and a point that I made, sort of, back in this piece, too).
And, as per usual, there’s a fresh batch of Jewish literary links over on My Machberet.
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
