Each Friday, the Practicing Writing blog shares writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- Over on The Literary Saloon: remembering author Milan Kundera (1929-2023).
- “The Unlimited Shelf Life of Story Ideas”: Jacqui Banaszynski for Nieman Storyboard.
- From the Library of Congress: “The full schedule of author presentations and book signings for the 2023 National Book Festival on Saturday, Aug. 12, is live. You can check out the complete schedule on the National Book Festival website: loc.gov/bookfest.” (This is a hybrid event, with both in-person and virtual programming.)
- I loved reading the responses (on Substack) to Becky Tuch’s question, “What Was Your Most Memorable Publication Acceptance?”—and I even chimed in, myself.
- And you’ll find plenty of goodies in the latest Jewish literary links on the My Machberet blog.
Have a wonderful weekend.
