Finds for Writers
Each Friday, the Practicing Writing blog shares writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- Tweeted by Ilya Kaminsky: “A gentle reminder: please help to spread the word about this resource for refugee writers from Ukraine: https://docs.google.com/document/u/0/d/1BDJAZC1lJSIkR7WS_XNAfF5s9nmQTbi1btlOYfJ6MRI/mobilebasic.”
- Free online event happening Sunday afternoon for librarians and educators (I suspect that writers, too, will appreciate it): “How to be an Ally to Jewish Patrons and Students (Even in a Non-Jewish Neighborhood).”
- I’ve become an avid follower of Sarah Einstein’s Writing Family Histories newsletter, so I was particularly interested when I ran across Einstein’s post “Using a Newsletter as a Prewriting Exercise and Research Tool” over on the Brevity blog.
- Sensing that you might benefit from a quick refresher on apostrophes? Tense consistency? Any of a number of other writing points? Check out the exercises provided by Purdue University’s Online Writing Lab (OWL). I used some of them this week with my students, and I plan to continue using them myself.
- Surprise! This week, instead of the usual end-of-week post on the My Machberet blog, I switched things up a bit for the Purim holiday. Take a look at what I posted instead.
May everyone have a good weekend.
