Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • “New work from 10 poets with disabilities” is featured—and introduced by Jennifer Bartlett—over on
  • On the Powell’s site, Julie Schumacher, whose Dear Committee Members I loved and whose The Shakespeare Requirement is high on on my tbr list, shares “Five Reasons to Keep Track of Every Single Book You Read.” (FYI: Since joining Goodreads in 2010, I’ve relied on that platform for my own book-tracking purposes.) I thank The Literary Saloon for the tip about Schumacher’s post.
  • A new conference is coming to Minneapolis: Wordsmith, “a craft, career, and connection conference for writers.” More information over on The Loft’s website.
  • “How to Write Attention-Grabbing Promo Copy for Books”—terrific advice from M.J. Rose (via BookBub).
  • And if it’s Friday, you’ll find a fresh batch of #JewLit links over on the My Machberet blog. Among this week’s offerings: the return of the Book of Life podcast, Kafka, Isaac Bashevis Singer, and more.
  • Have a great weekend, everyone!
