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.

  • #BookPromo resource alert: This list of book festivals on the American Writers Museum website could be useful to anyone trying to build up a list of festivals to pitch for possible presentations. (Thanks to Christi Craig for pointing me to this page.)
  • The New York Times discovers literary Las Vegas.
  • From The Aiming Circle: literary podcasts that regularly feature writers of “military history, memoir, genre fiction, or even poetry.” (Via Tracy Crow.)
  • On Jane Friedman’s website: “How to Plan a Book Reading That Delights Your Audience,” a guest post that’s an excerpt from How to Read for an Audience: The Stuff Nobody Teaches You, co-authored by public speaking coach and creative mentor James Navé and author and workshop leader Allegra Huston.
  • And over on the My Machberet blog, there’s a fresh batch of Jewish-lit links.
  • Have a great weekend!
