Each Friday, the Practicing Writing blog shares writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- Over on the Brevity blog, M. Betsy Smith offers tips on applying for a writing residency.
- “Here’s the plan: once a week, every week, I will read one story from William Trevor’s The Collected Stories and write about it.” Thank you, Adam O’Fallon Price (and The Millions) for brightening my week with the launch of this amazing project.
- Anne R. Allen issues this “Warning to Writers: You Won’t See This New Publishing Scam Coming.” (via Frances Caballo)
- “From the pens of babes: A 9-year-old starts a neighborhood newspaper, and reminds her journalist mother about passion, fun and problem solving.” Delightful piece by Traci Angel for NiemanStoryboard.
- And, of course, you’ll find the latest Jewish-lit links posted over on the My Machberet blog.
Have a wonderful weekend.
