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.

  • We spend a lot of time talking about the craft of opening lines. In this piece, Ron Charles gives some attention (and praise) to closing ones.
  • Loved this profile (and accompanying video) of Harvard senior Ruben Reyes Jr. and Palabritas, the new Latinx literary magazine that he has launched. (Via Juan Siliezar/Harvard Gazette.)
  • Freelancers may want to check out this analysis of pay rates (using Who Pays Writers? for the data) from Kevin McElwee/Columbia Journalism Review.
  • Super-useful advice on how to grow a newsletter subscriber list, from Christina McDonald, on Jane Friedman’s site.
  • And of course, there’s a new set of Jewish-lit links on the My Machberet blog.
  • Have a great weekend, everyone.

        I’m sorry–I thought that WaPo permitted a certain number of articles per month to non-subscribers. Is that no longer the case?
