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.

  • It’s not every day that a novelist appears on the cover of TIME magazine.
  • Let the arguments begin: In “The 50 Best Memoirs of the Past 50 Years,” The New York Times’s book critics identify “the most outstanding memoirs published since 1969.”
  • I’ve got lots of podcast episodes queued up (I’m behind!), but one that I did manage to listen to recently—from the New Books Network’s poetry channel—features my book-promo client John Sibley Williams.
  • Speaking of poetry: Meet Kara Jackson, 2019 National Youth Poet Laureate.
  • And over on the My Machberet blog, there’s a fresh batch of Jewish-lit links.
  • Happy weekend! (Subscribers, your July issue of The Practicing Writer should be in your e-mailbox by the end of the weekend. Not yet a subscriber? There’s a page for that.)
