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.

  • A thread of quick-and-easy cover-note templates for your litmag submissions, courtesy of Todd Dillard (via @Barrelhouse).
  • A couple of recent items on book reviewing that I discovered around the same time and have been meaning to share: a thoughtful tweet from my friend Magin LaSov Gregg and Ryan G. Van Cleave’s Writer magazine piece with practical tips on “Book Reviewing for Beginners.”
  • An analysis on the publication of translations in the United States, by Chad W. Post for Publishers Weekly.
  • From Crystal King: “Seven Secrets for Authors Promoting Their Books.” (Confession: Not even my trust in this piece is likely to get me active posting on Instagram or Pinterest anytime soon, but there we are, and as the piece notes, that’s okay!)
  • And course, there’s a new set of Jewish-lit links on the My Machberet blog.
  • Have a great weekend, everyone.
