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 NYTimes.com. 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!
