Image description: wooden box filled with treasures/trinkets.

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

  • Ahead of the #MarchforOurLives, The Washington Post‘s Ron Charles reviews three new novels about gun violence.
  • One of the novels in Ron’s triple review is How to Be Safe by Tom McAllister, whose essay on teaching creative writing for The Millions this week resonated with me.
  • “Inspired by the #MeToo movement and aiming to provide a harassment-free experience’ for all attendees at its events, the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association has created an Event Code of Conduct that will be displayed prominently at official PNBA gatherings, in the footer on every page of PNBA.org and among the category headers on the trade show webpage.”—via Shelf Awareness.
  • Journalist Tristan Ahtone “is at work on a set of guidelines for fair and accurate coverage of Native American lives and stories, as part of his stint at Harvard as a Nieman Fellow.”
  • And remember: If it’s Friday, you’ll find a fresh set of #JewLit links over on My Machberet.
  • Have a wonderful weekend.

    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.
