Each week (typically Fridays), the Practicing Writing blog offers writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.
- Over on Lit Mag News: some thoughts from poet and editor Mark Danowsky on submission guidelines—and plenty of comments in response.
- From Publishers Weekly: “We’ve put together a Google calendar rounding up the book business’s tentpole events to keep you in the loop this year. We’ll keep it updated regularly throughout 2024.”
- I really like the focus of the daily writing practice that’s described in this Midstory Substack post—I’m even tempted to sign up for the related workshop, but I know that there’s a full week when I simply won’t be able to keep up. (Maybe next round?) In the meantime, I’m trying to follow the concept myself.
- Kathleen Schmidt’s “Book Publishing Predictions” for the year we’ve just started.
- And you’ll find a new call for submissions, an utterly unofficial book-award shortlist, and much more among latest Jewish-lit links on My Machberet.
And ICYMI: The January issue of The Practicing Writer 2.0 went out to subscribers last Sunday. As usual—dozens of fee-free and paying opportunities within.
Have a good weekend, all.
