Each Friday, the Practicing Writing blog shares writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- A clarifying post about university presses (through the lens of the University of New Mexico Press).
- Last night, Ada Limón gave her inaugural reading as the 24th Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry at the Library of Congress. Fortunately, icymi, it was recorded.
- A recent post on Nieman Storyboard provides “a sampling of possibilities on how to use Storyboard in your journalism and writing classes.” Bonus: The post invites pitches from both students and teachers. (Nieman Storyboard’s rates “range from $150 to $400, depending on the nature of the piece.”)
- Among the latest Jewish-lit links on My Machberet: a new story by Nicole Krauss, multiple kidlit items, and more.
- And last, but not least: The October issue of The Practicing Writer 2.0 went out to subscribers earlier today. It’s packed with 60+ fee-free opportunities that will pay poets, fictionists, and writers of creative nonfiction for their winning/published work.
Please have a good, safe weekend.
