Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Super-instructive Q&A between Terrapin Books publisher Diane Lockward and author Karen Paul Holmes on resubmitting a previously rejected poetry-book manuscript.
  • Advice from Leslie Pietrzyk on “How to Help Your Writer Friend.”
  • News came this week about the guest editors for the 2018 Best American series volumes from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt: “Among the biggest names to be featured as editors are Roxane Gay (Hunger), who will helm the Short Story collection; Cheryl Strayed (Wild), guest-editing the Travel Writing section; and Pulitzer Prize-winning New Yorker theater critic Hilton Als, who will oversee the Essays book. In addition, legendary food critic Ruth Reichl will edit the Best American Series’ first-ever book on Food Writing.” (Meantime, the 2017 volumes I purchased a couple of months ago are, of course, sitting in a TBR pile.)
  • In The Washington Post, T. A. Frank considers the significance of conservative magazines in our current moment.
  • And remember: If it’s Friday, you’ll find a fresh set of #JewLit links over on My Machberet.
  • Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.
