Each Friday, the Practicing Writing blog shares writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- In which The Masters Review editors chat about the “narrative tropes we feel are overused, ineffective, or generally hard sells for us.”
- When days begin to blur, it’s easy to miss Big News—so if you didn’t catch Monday’s announcement of the latest Pulitzer Prizes, here it is.
- Another announcement some may have missed: Joy Harjo has been re-appointed U.S. Poet Laureate. (Celebrate this news later today, when Harjo will take part in this virtual event.)
- And something else that may have passed you by: the latest updates to the Associated Press Stylebook.
- And there’s another super-healthy collection of Jewish-lit links up on the My Machberet blog; the post kicks off with important news about the Jerusalem Writers Festival, which begins this Sunday.
And the newly routine reminder that in case you’ve missed it, this site maintains an (updated) of emergency resources for writers: bit.ly/EmergencyResourcesWriters. Please have a good, safe, healthy weekend.
