Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Three quick things:

1. Tomorrow I’ll be Boston-bound for Grub Street’s The Muse & the Marketplace conference (where I will be co-leading a Sunday morning session with Rachel Kadish). I’m going to take a brief blogging hiatus while I’m away; look for the next blog post here (and also, on My Machberet) after I return. Continue reading ›

Friday Finds for Writers


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

  • Whether you made it to the AWP conference in Tampa or not, you’re likely to smile when you read “A More Realistic AWP Schedule” by Margaret Cipriano and Paige Quiñones over on McSweeney’s.
  • Interested in pitching Pacific Standard? Take a few moments to read Katia Savchuk’s conversation with executive editor Jennifer Sahn for Nieman Storyboard.
  • I’ve had death on my mind this week (here’s one reason why; friends’ responses to the passing of Lucie Brock-Broido is another). So maybe that’s why this new prompt from The Writer has left an impression on me.
  • News about Farrar, Straus & Giroux: “Later this year, Mitzi Angel, 43, the publisher of Faber & Faber in London, will join FSG as its new publisher and senior vice president, and will oversee the company’s editorial and marketing operations.” Jonathan Galassi “will remain as president and continue to acquire and edit books.”
  • And remember: If it’s Friday, you’ll find a fresh set of #JewLit links over on My Machberet.
  • Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

    Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

    Three quick things:

    1) Over on the My Machberet blog, I’ve posted a poem from my archive, following the passing early Sunday morning of one of the people who inspired it.

    2) Given the weather forecast for today, it also seems appropriate to re-up this winter poem.

    3) One last pre-event reminder that if you’re AWP-bound (aforementioned forecast notwithstanding), and planning to attend tomorrow’s session on “Jewish Writing Versus Writing by Jews,” I’d like to hear from you!
