Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • It’s National Short Story Month! And my friend Rachel Hall has a terrific post over on the Emerging Writers Network site about Alice Munro’s story endings.
  • Viet Thanh Nguyen writes about Vietnamese and Vietnamese-American literature.
  • Over on Literary Hub, Steve Attardo divulges “secrets of the book designer: my job isn’t to make things pretty.”
  • And over on my other blog, I wrote about this week’s Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature ceremony (and the one I attended 10 years ago).
  • I won’t be there in person this year, but I’ll likely check out some of the tweets from Grub Street’s “The Muse and the Marketplace” conference this weekend (#Muse17). If you’re going to be there, have fun!
  • Have a wonderful weekend.
