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

  • Didn’t make it to the latest Calabash Literary Festival in Jamaica? For Vogue, Kristin Braswell gives an overview. (Thanks to @BellCV for the tip.)
  • “Brooklyn Independent publisher Akashic Books has recruited bestselling author Ann Hood to head Gracie Belle, a new imprint that will specialize in books on grief, loss and recovery. The imprint, named after Hood’s daughter who passed away at a young age, will release one or two books a year. It first title, a memoir called Now You See The Sky by Catharine Murray, will be released in November.” Calvin Reid reports for Publishers Weekly.
  • In which Randy Susan Meyers talks about becoming a published novelist at the age of 57 (and much more).
  • I could point you directly to Jane Friedman’s presentation on getting funding/grants for your writing. But it’s more fun to send you to Allison K. Williams’s introductory post on the Brevity blog.
  • And remember: If it’s Friday, you’ll find a fresh set of #JewLit links over on My Machberet.
  • Have a great weekend!
