Friday Finds for Writers

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

  • Didn’t make it to the latest Writer’s Digest Annual Conference? Neither did I. But we can catch up (sort of) via these “100 Writing & Publishing Tips” from that event.
  • The “dacha” in upstate New York where Gary Shteyngart wrote his latest novel. (“‘Lake Success’ was written up here in about six months. It the city, it would take a year and a half, two years to get a draft out.”)
  • A lengthy forthcoming-books list, courtesy of the New York Society Library.
  • Especially since I’ve written a few winter-related poems (and one meteorologically-oriented autumnal equinox one), this “Heat Wave” prompt from The Writer caught my attention. (Maybe it helped that this week it has been pretty hot here in New York, too.)
  • 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: NEA translation fellowship news, a close look at three of Romain Gary’s books, and some news from Jewish Storyteller Press (and me).
  • Have a great weekend, everyone!
