Writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- ICYMI: The November issue of The Practicing Writer went out to subscribers yesterday. (Yes, another two dozen fee-free, paying opportunities await you and your fiction, poetry, and/or cnf.) This issue will remain online until the December edition replaces it.
- “Can Bookshop Become the Indie Amazon?” I suspect that mine isn’t the only inquiring mind that wants to know.
- Succinct, sage advice on book promotion from Saraceia J. Fennell.
- On my weekend reading list: two articles tagged “The Politics of Fiction” on New York magazine’s “Vulture” vertical. One is by Alexander Chee; the other, by Lila Shapiro, is titled “Who Gave You the Right to Tell that Story” and features “ten authors on the most divisive question in fiction, and the times they wrote outside their own identities.”
- And if it’s Friday, there’s a fresh batch of Jewish-lit links over on the My Machberet blog (including a quick reminder about the EXCITING week tk!).
Have a great weekend!
