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

  • This week brought news of a new publishing venture: Authors’ Equity. Among many reports/analyses, you’ll find one over on Book Riot, featuring “a little round of ‘cool/interesting/nope'” observations.
  • A timely post from Ruth Franklin—grounded in some literary history—that takes up the question, “can you continue a friendship with someone whose politics you find immoral or unethical?“.
  • “The Confessional Essay Returns”—thoughts from Paul Zakrzewski.
  • Teachers & Writers Magazine “asked four veteran creative writing teachers to share their thoughts on teaching writing in a series of ‘Letters to a Young Teacher.’ Drawing on experience that spans from second grade classrooms to memory care units, these teachers share pearls of wisdom—and calls to action—for new educators to draw upon as they start their teaching journeys.” 
  • And just in time for International Women’s Day (today!): the My Machberet blog amplifies five Substacks written by Jewish women.

Reminder: Planning to devote some weekend time to researching homes/opportunities for your writing? Be sure to check out our March newsletter.
