Writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- Among the goodies in Allison Pottern Hoch’s latest newsletter: “what to expect from your publicist.“
- For me, perhaps the most interesting aspect of T. Coraghessan Boyle’s short story in this week’s New Yorker is its use of alternating narrators, a topic that I can’t help wishing had received a more lengthy answer in this Q&A on the magazine’s site.
- I’m bookmarking this brief guide on the using the present tense when writing about literary works for future reference (and teaching).
- Speaking of teaching: I missed the Library of Congress’s recent webinar with Rita Dove on teaching poetry, but fortunately, I’ve found a recording, and I hope to watch it soon.
- And you’ll find the latest Jewish Literary Links posted over on the My Machberet blog.
Have a great weekend!
