Friday Finds for Writers
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
Calling your attention to a particularly intriguing set of Jewish-lit links over on my other blog today—featuring Salman Rushdie on Philip Roth, an NPR call for Hanukkah-related short fiction and essays, and more.
“As I considered the 120 stories I read for The Best American Short Stories 2018, I thought about this cultural moment and what it means to both write politically and read politically.”—Roxane Gay, in her introduction to this year’s BASS volume (via Literary Hub).
Ruth Franklin peeks into author John Wray’s Brooklyn home, “a cross between an artists’ colony, a co-working space, and a frat house.”
Resource alert: over on BookBub, Diana Urban shares “20 Podcasts for Authors on Writing, Publishing, and Book Marketing.”
If you’ve ever wondered, “How Do I Read a Poem?”—or been asked to explain that mystery yourself—you’ll likely appreciate this response from the U.S. poet laureate Tracy K. Smith.
