Each Friday, the Practicing Writing blog shares writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- “These Alt-Weeklies Faced ‘Total Annihilation.’ Here’s How They Survived.” Sophia June reports for The Daily Beast.
- In which Nicole Krauss reflects on “stealing from life” in fiction-writing—and what she learned from Philip Roth on that subject. (h/t @LaurenZCollins)
- March has just started, but if you’re already contemplating April, note that Robert Lee Brewer will again be running a Poem-A-Day (PAD) challenge, and plan accordingly!
- ICYMI: The March issue of The Practicing Writer 2.0 went out to subscribers last weekend. Features 45 curated opportunities for writers of poetry, fiction, and/or creative nonfiction, plus some other goodies.
- And don’t miss the latest Jewish-lit links (including a couple of paying calls for pitches/submissions) over on the My Machberet blog.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
