Tracy K. Smith is our next U.S. poet laureate.
In which Allison K. Williams recommends and quotes from Glendaliz Camacho’s recent recommendations for writing-residency applicants.
In the unlikely event that this is news to you: Roxane Gay has a new book out. There’s been so much media coverage of Gay and her memoir (Hunger) that I haven’t been able to keep up with it. I plan to spend some quality time this weekend watching her appearance on Trevor Noah’s show and reading the The Village Voice‘s cover story.
Next month will bring the release of an important new book: The Writing Revolution: A Guide to Advancing Thinking Through Writing in All Subjects and Grades, co-authored by Judith C. Hochman and my friend Natalie Wexler. Check out this Q&A to learn more about it.
And if it’s Friday, you’ll find a fresh set of Jewish-lit links over on the My Machberet blog.
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
