Finds for Writers
Each Friday, the Practicing Writing blog shares writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- From The Postscript: Isabelle Meuret presents a conversation with Barry Siegel and Amy Wilentz in which “the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Critics Circle award winners” address “teaching literary reportage, how Donald Trump’s presidency was a boon for journalism programs, and the power of storytelling.”
- Jami Attenberg’s latest newsletter manages to bring some craft lessons into the experience of fleeing a hurricane. Plus, you’ll find within some hurricane-relief efforts that you might want to support, if you can.
- ICYMI: The September issue of The Practicing Writer 2.0 went out to subscribers earlier this week. As usual, it’s packed with opportunities for your work to be supported/published/otherwise recognized. (And none of them will charge you fees for trying! And all of them will pay for winning/published work!) Planning to use this weekend for some strategic submissions? Be sure to consult the newsletter.
- As mentioned in the aforementioned newsletter: You may want to mark your calendars/register for a September 14 “Poetry Palooza” kickoff event hosted by the International Women’s Writing Guild (IWWG). The free event features a panel moderated by Trish Hopkinson (and yes, I’m one of the panelists).
- And, of course, over on the My Machberet blog there’s a new post featuring Jewish literary links.
Please have a good, safe weekend.
