Friday Finds for Writers


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

  • “A Bookseller’s Guide to Successful Author Events,” courtesy of Rebecca George, co-owner of Volumes Bookcafe in Chicago. (Thanks to @RL_Maizes for this one.)
  • Some tips from Jane Friedman on how to pitch agents at a writers conference.
  • In the unlikely event that you don’t already have enough to read: The Millions recently published “Most Anticipated: The Great Second-Half 2017 Book Preview.” (Yep, still more titles to put on those TBR lists!)
  • ICYMI: “Making Poetry Pay: Five Ways to Increase Your Poetry Income.”
  • And if it’s Friday, there’s a fresh batch of #JewLit links over on My Machberet.
  • Have a great weekend, everyone.

      Thanks, Erika. I always enjoy your Monday and Friday posts–kind of like bookends for the workweek. Shabbat Shalom!

      So, I received my newsletter today and I was thinking you had your days mixed up. It’s 5:17 p.m. and I just realized today is Friday not Thursday! This is what happens sometimes when you work at home (or you’re old like I am).
