Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Ever wonder how authors might connect with book clubs? Tara Lynn Masih offers some advice.
  • “There are no interns or other readers here: every single poem sent to Poetry is read by an editor whose name is on the masthead. And we get about 150,000 poems a year!”—Don Share, quoted in a recent “Editors Talk” post on the Frontier Poetry site.
  • In “Back to School at 64,” Anne Rudig describes her experience in the Columbia University nonfiction program.
  • For me, the word “chapbook” most frequently evokes associations with poetry. But there was a session devoted to nonfiction chapbooks at the recent conference of the Association of Writers & Writing Programs (#AWP18). And Lisa Romeo has summarized it for the Assay website.
  • And remember: If it’s Friday, you’ll find a fresh set of #JewLit links over on My Machberet. (Including, this week, more from #AWP18.)
  • Have a wonderful weekend.
