Each Friday, the Practicing Writing blog shares writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- Updated this week: this list of low-residency/summer-study/online MFA programs in creative writing.
- Speaking of updates: It seems to have taken me a few weeks to figure this out, but the NewPages team has redesigned (and relocated) their blog. Spiffy!
- Having recently read Courtney Maum’s excellent new Before and After the Book Deal—but having not yet figured out how/when/where I may be able to write about it myself—I was delighted to find this interview with Maum, conducted by Rachel Barenbaum, which offers a good sense of the book’s tone and tips.
- In related news: Minorities in Publishing is offering TWO giveaway copies of Maum’s new book. Follow the tweet’s instructions to enter by January 22.
- And of course, there’s a new set of Jewish-lit links over on the My Machberet blog.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
