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.

  • “Which poems have the best endings?” @MohnSlate asked, and Twitter replied.
  • The latest issue of Poets & Writers magazine is evidently out; some content, including Kevin Larimer’s agent-focused feature, is accessible online to everyone.
  • To date, I’m just a lurker on Instagram. But Allison K. Williams’s post on Instagram for Writers may change that.
  • “In my junior year, I signed up for a nonfiction-writing class, taught by Fred Strebeigh, a writer who had published widely in prestigious magazines. Professor Strebeigh assigned readings by Joan Didion, John McPhee, Annie Dillard, and Tom Wolfe. Calvin Trillin visited the class. It was my first writing workshop.” From a brief essay by Min Jin Lee for The New Yorker.
  • And over on the My Machberet blog, there’s a fresh batch of Jewish-lit links (including, this week, news about a re-designed award program for nonfiction books on Jewish themes).
  • Have a good weekend, everyone.
