Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Three quick things.

1. Birthright updates! I’ve received a beautiful cover design from my publisher—it requires a couple of tweaks, but I hope to be able to share it with you soon.

Meantime, the final manuscript (which I managed to hand in a bit before deadline) has been returned to me in layout form. I’m spending the rest of this week reviewing that (along, of course, with just a few other projects!). Continue reading ›

Monday Markets and Jobs for Writers

These posts are intended to complement/supplement monthly issues of The Practicing Writer newsletter, where you’ll always find more listings, none of them limiting eligibility to residents of a single municipality, state, or province (this blog, on the other hand, does sometimes include those more restricted opportunities).

1. THANK YOU

First things first: Thanks so much to everyone who commented and corresponded with me last week about both of the Birthright-related questions that I raised in that set of Midweek Notes.
