Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • “Ever want to stay up all night reading? Support literacy for young readers and students? Celebrate your local independent bookstore turning 13?” You’re in luck if you’re in the area of Porter Square Books in Cambridge, Massachusetts. (I love this idea for an overnight readathon, which I discovered via Chris Abouzeid, so much.)
  • “Self-Publishing a Debut Literary Novel: The Actions, The Costs, The Results”: another super-instructive post on Jane Friedman’s website (this time, written by Nicole Dieker).
  • Wayne State University Press is 75 years old; Howard Lovy takes note with this Q&A with Kathryn Wildfong, interim director and editor-in-chief there.
  • “One of the hardest things to learn about writing poems is how to break lines.” Isn’t it, though? Thanks to Chloe N. Clark for her post on the topic on the Ploughshares blog.
  • And if it’s Friday, it’s time for the latest #JewLit links over on the My Machberet blog.
  • Have a great weekend, everyone.
