Each Friday, the Practicing Writing blog shares writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- Weekend podcast listening: looking forward to a special Hear to Slay podcast episode celebrating the life and work of Toni Morrison.
- “If I Were Queen of Translation Reviews”—thoughts from Michele A. Berdy (via M.A. Orthofer)
- I’d been seeing the hashtag #TheSealeyChallenge on Twitter lately, but it wasn’t until I spent some time this week on the NewPages blog that I took the time to learn about it. The brainstorm of Nicole Sealey, it’s an August challenge to read a poetry book of chapbook each day. Here’s Katy Haas’s midmonth report on her progress through the challenge.
- The September/October issue of Poets & Writers magazine is out, with selected content available online to all.
- And there’s an especially rich set of Jewish-lit links up today (if I say so myself) over on the My Machberet blog.
Have a great weekend.
