Each Friday, the Practicing Writing blog shares writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- In which Patricia Park, whose second novel will be published next week, includes several craft books when asked to identify five books she’ll never part with.
- Making the rounds this week: the news that “Catapult has announced that it will shutter its eponymous online magazine and writing classes program.”
- A resonant excerpt from Stephen Marche’s new book, On Writing and Failure: Or, On the Peculiar Perseverance Required to Endure the Life of a Writer. (Which of course reminded me of this vintage item from my own archive.)
- From Kathy Fish: “Ten tried and true tips” for writing terrific titles.
- And of course, there’s a new set of Jewish literary links posted over on the My Machberet blog. (I can’t recommend Heidi Rabinowitz’s presentation “A Place at the Table: The Jewish Community Within the Library Diversity World” highly enough.)
Quick reminder that even as we’ve crossed the mid-month mark plenty of the opportunities listed in the February newsletter remain open for your consideration (and remember to check the supplementary Monday Markets posts, too). Have a great weekend, everyone.
