Each Friday, the Practicing Writing blog shares writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- “I Never Made a Living Wage When I Worked in Publishing”: a sobering essay by Bethany Ball for Electric Literature.
- Looking ahead: Robert Lee Brewer is already planning the April Poem-A-Day (PAD) Challenge on the Writer’s Digest site. An excellent source for prompts and motivation during National Poetry Month.
- Attention, fans of author Rebecca Makkai (and really, who isn’t a fan of Rebecca Makkai?). I have three 1-month gift subscriptions to give to would-be readers of her Subsack newsletter. They’ll go to the first three people who comment on this post with a request. (Yes, many of her posts are freely available; the subscriptions will give you temporary access to those that are “locked.”)
- More about AI writing, and other topics, in this Lit Mag News roundup.
- “For the people at Jewish Book Week and the Genesis Foundation, apparently writers can emerge (re-emerge, be unsubmerged, surge) at any age.” From a wonderful essay by Karen E.H. Skinazi that you’ll find cross-posted over on My Machberet, in the latest Jewish Literary Links.
Have a good weekend, everyone.
