Each Friday, the Practicing Writing blog shares writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- Flummoxed by the “artist statement” requirement of many residency and related applications? NYFA has some advice.
- Ready to dig deep into a “literary travesty”? Alta has you covered.
- The PEN/Faulkner Foundation has announced “that Yiyun Li has been selected as the winner of the 2022 PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in the Short Story.”
- Good news: Both The Believer and Conjunctions are back from their respective brinks!
- Right on schedule: Yesterday brought a fresh set of Jewish Literary Links over on the My Machberet blog.
And one more note: I’m looking forward to taking part in this discussion about “how Jewish religious text fits (or doesn’t) into the contemporary creative literary landscape.” Happening next week; registration is open ($18 for the general public).
Have a wonderful weekend.
