Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer
Three quick things:
1. I’m back from a fabulous few days at Grub Street’s “The Muse and the Marketplace” conference in Boston. I wish that I’d already had the time to write up a detailed account of sessions attended (including my own, although there’s at least a basic overview of that one over on the My Machberet blog.) I have noble intentions—perhaps there may be something about the larger conference in the next issue of The Practicing Writer. (No promises! But noble intentions.)
2. If you haven’t yet seen Nausheen Eusuf’s “Where to Submit Your Work” on the Submittable blog, you should definitely check it out (and not only because Eusuf offers so many kind words about my own newsletter and blog posts there!).
3. And a brief, sober reminder that Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) begins this evening at sundown. It seems appropriate, then, that this weekend, I’ll be tallying up my Q1 contribution to The Blue Card, based on recent sales of Quiet Americans.
