Friday Finds for Writers

Description: closed trunk and text label announcing, “Finds for Writers.”

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

  • “Beautiful Living Things” by Steve Adams is not only, as its subtitle suggests, “A Farewell to ‘Glimmer Train’”; it’s also a love letter to this and other literary magazines (via @terrylkennedy).
  • By Cassie Lipp: “5 Lessons Writers Can Learn from the Film ‘Can You Ever Forgive Me?’” (which I haven’t yet seen, but, especially after reading this piece, hope to catch, soon).
  • Some advice for pitching book bloggers (and others) from Penny Sansevieri (via @CaballoFrances).
  • Having trouble keeping track of all of those “best books of the year” lists that are popping up? Once again this year, Largehearted Boy has you covered.
  • And of course, you’ll discover a fresh set of Jewish-literary links today over on the My Machberet blog. (Today’s post features some intriguing fellowship opportunities in Jewish journalism, fyi.)
  • Have a great weekend.
