Each Friday, the Practicing Writing blog shares writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- Happening next week (and we’re all invited!): Three Conversations on Contemporary Biography: Writing about Writers with Langdon Hammer & Terrance Hayes; Ruth Franklin & Imani Perry; Hermione Lee & Stacy Schiff.
- From Kelli Russell Agodon: “Thoughts on Putting Together a Poetry Manuscript.” (Spoiler: There’s no single way to do this. But there are many possibilities.)
- #HandlingHaters is an appropriate hashtag for this recent episode of the #AmWriting podcast. “We talk types of bad reviews, strategies for coping with them and how to arm yourself for everything your pub date can bring.”
- Selected content from the March/April issue of Poets & Writers is now available online.
- Don’t miss this week’s Jewish Lit Links on My Machberet: Purim-relevant info, my latest reading, and MORE!
Wishing you all a good weekend. Especially good vibes—heartfelt hopes for safety, warmth, water, and sustenance—go out to everyone in Texas.
