Each Friday, the Practicing Writing blog shares writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- From Publishers Weekly: “Have you held a fun virtual literary event lately? Want to see your lovely face in ‘Publishers Weekly’? We’re always looking for more Picture of the Day submissions!”
- Bookmarked: the latest issue of Brevity, featuring micro-essays on the experience of disability.
- Did you miss this week’s New York Times “Book Review Live” event on politics and fiction? So did I. But a recording is available; that, too, I’ve bookmarked.
- I did, however, manage to catch much of last night’s launch event for “Lift Every Voice: 250 Years of African American Poetic Traditions”—which is where I learned that there’s a brand-new website devoted to the project.
- And you’ll find the final set of Jewish lit links for the Jewish year 5780 up on the My Machberet blog. Shabbat shalom and shanah tovah to all who are celebrating!
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.
