Each week (typically Fridays), the Practicing Writing blog offers writing and publishing resources, news, and reflections to peruse over the weekend.

  • Over on her Substack, Alina Adams is currently chronicling quite the interactions with a book-marketing scammer.
  • In which Allison K. Williams pleads for litmags to simply own/disclose their payment policies.
  • From the Authors Guild: “What does a successful publicity campaign look like for children’s books—picture books, middle grade, and YA? Join us to kick off the kidlit edition of Authors Guild Launchpad with a panel discussion featuring veteran publicists who will give us an overview of the steps and timelines that authors should expect.” This free online event is scheduled for March 5.
  • Food for thought: Harvard Law School professor/free-speech advocate Randall L. Kennedy argues that that it’s all right to seek the disinvitation of speakers.
  • And in case you missed it: The March edition of The Practicing Writer 2.0 went out to subscribers yesterday. It’s packed with 50+ fee-free (and paying) opportunities for writers of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction. You can find it archived here.

Have a good weekend, all.
