Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- Karen Lynne Traub’s mentor said that what Traub had submitted “might be shaped into a fine personal essay but it is not a critical thesis for an MFA program.” Here’s what happened next.
- Looking forward to reading Adam Morgan’s “10 Best Book Reviews of 2019.”
- It’s always nice to see the latest “New and Noteworthy” titles on the New Pages Book Stand; for reasons that will become clear, it’s especially nice for me to see this month’s batch.
- Library Journal spotlights 2019’s “paradigm-shifting public libraries [that] are designed around their communities’ changing needs.” Are any of them in your neighborhood?
- And last, but by no means least: check out the latest Jewish-lit links over on the My Machberet blog.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
