Finds for Writers

Writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.

  • Finding yourself less compelled to post on social media these days? (ED note: I sure am.) You’re not alone. Here’s a gift link for Cordilia James’s Wall Street Journal article on the subject.
  • “When I go through students’ papers and flag the misplaced modifiers, note the clichés or explain that a 15-sentence paragraph is less approachable than a five-sentence one, I sometimes ask myself a question that the students who get those papers back from me perhaps ponder as well: Does it really matter?” The latest from Frank Bruni (again, unlocked for you!).
  • Over on The Literary Saloon: a few links to lists of books-to-look-forward-to in 2024.
  • And one more of those lists, and more, in 2023’s final set of Jewish lit links on My Machberet.
  • Coming soon (as in: Sunday) the January 2024 issue of The Practicing Writer. In the meantime, make sure you’ve checked our latest newsletter and supplementary “Markets and Jobs” blog posts.

Have a wonderful weekend and a safe and happy new year.

    From Frank Bruni’s article: “Good writing burnishes your message. It burnishes the messenger, too.” Well said. Thank you for making this article and the WSJ one available, Erika.
