Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- Happening next Wednesday (12/18) on Twitter: the December #APStyleChat, which will focus on holiday terms.
- This week brought news of a deal between Submittable and the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP) that will cut Submittable costs significantly for CLMP member publishers/publications. My question: Will those savings be passed along to writers in the form of reduced (or even removed) sub fees?
- Selected content from the January-February issue of Poets & Writers magazine is now online, including the always-interesting annual feature on debut poetry (spoiler: my book’s not there—not that I’d pitched it).
- Happy to see the return of Ruben Quesada’s “Poetry Today” series in its new home on the Kenyon Review blog. The series is “dedicated to learning about the characteristics of poets and poetry from writers who have published a collection of poetry, full-length or chapbook, within the year.”
- Latest Jewish-lit links—including an exciting call for unpublished Jewish fiction—over on the My Machberet blog.
Have a great weekend.
