Each Friday, the Practicing Writing blog shares writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- You may want to mark your calendar (and proceed with required registration) for “Why Short Fiction? Writing and Publishing Short Stories and Flash Fiction,” a free panel event that will be livestreamed from the New York Society Library on September 28.
- Here’s something that may help with writing and publishing in all genres: a new way to think about “submissions” and “rejections” as articulated in Rebekah Wolman’s guest post for Lit Mag News Roundup.
- Over on Catapult, it’s been “Application Week” for the “Don’t Write Alone” series. Among the new columns you’ll find “A Person of Color’s Guide to Navigating Writing Residencies,” in which Hannah Bae “writes about applying to and attending writing residencies as a person of color—along with tips from about ten other writers who identify as BIPOC.”
- Select content from the September/October issue of Poets & Writers is now available to all online (my favorite item: Michael Taeckens’s Q&A with Kate Tuttle, my erstwhile internship supervisor, for the “Reviewers & Critics” series).
- And, as always, you’ll find a fresh set of Jewish literary links posted over on the My Machberet blog. Do take a look!
Have a wonderful weekend!
