Friday Finds for Writers

Image description: wooden box filled with treasures/trinkets.

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

  • How to promote your book—and/or yourself—by saying less. Advice from Jane Friedman.
  • For TIME, Lauren Mechling reports on the rise of the celebrity-run book imprint.
  • Carolyn Waters is something akin to “a den mother for the many writers who toil away” at the New York Society Library; she (and the Library) are the focus of this lovely profile by Corey Kilgannon for The New York Times.
  • My weekend viewing (and maybe yours): “The Crisis in Book Reviewing: Disappearing Space, Disappearing Pay” (a National Book Critics Circle panel at the recent Book Expo 2018).
  • And remember: If it’s Friday, you’ll find a fresh set of #JewLit links over on My Machberet.
  • Have a great weekend!
