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.

  • Want to binge on some recently-recorded poetry events? The Library of Congress has you covered.
  • Always a popular resource: Jane Friedman’s quick guide to key publishing paths, updated for 2019-20.
  • “On one side: a decorated literary writer. On the other: a retired dentist who wrote verse about sex with Condoleezza Rice. Guess whom the governor chose?” All about the selection of the next New Hampshire Poetry Laureate.
  • I happened to spend a bit of time at New York’s Jewish Museum yesterday, including a too-quick visit to the current Leonard Cohen exhibit. Which made me appreciate Jess Zimmerman’s Electric Literature piece on “The Towering Influence of Leonard Cohen” all the more.
  • Related: Over on the My Machberet blog, there’s a fresh batch of Jewish-lit links.
  • Have a good weekend, everyone.
