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.

  • In case you missed it: Yesterday was World Poetry Day.
  • “After the death of alt-weeklies, alt-alt-weeklies,” by Allison Braden for Columbia Journalism Review.
  • “It is a book one can very well get along without reading.” Such was The New York Times‘s verdict on Sister Carrie. More in this vein via Tina Jordan’s “Oops! Famously Scathing Reviews of Classic Books From The Times’s Archive” (which I missed when it was originally posted; thanks to The Millions for making sure that I caught it.)
  • A #ProTip that one hopes need not be reiterated: read the publications/sites that you’re considering sending your work to (BEFORE you send the work!).
  • And over on the My Machberet blog, there’s a fresh batch of Jewish-lit links.
  • Have a great weekend, everyone.
