The Wednesday Web Browser for Writers by Erika Dreifus on June 1, 2011 3 Leslie Greffenius reflects on “The Joy of Writing (Not More, Just Better) Sex.” Publishing Perspectives details the billionaire-backed rebirth of a Russian literary magazine. Meet Victoria Ford, who very much seems to be a young writer to watch for in the future. Erica Mena introduces a new course she is teaching, “Translation as Art.” Nina Badzin addresses the “Twitter Thanking Crisis.” (I try not to fall prey to the behavior cited, but I know that I’ve been guilty from time to time. I promise to try harder to behave.) Since my friend Rachel Hall was the one to introduce me to Jean Thompson’s work, I was especially pleased to discover an interview that Rachel conducted with Thompson over on Leslie Pietrzyk’s blog. Josh Lambert examines “why a growing number of today’s young Jewish fiction writers…are grounding their novels in scholarly research.” Congratulations to the winners of Midge Raymond’s Forgetting English & my Quiet Americans. The June issue of The Practicing Writer went out to subscribers on Monday. If you’re not yet a subscriber, you can find the issue–featuring an interview with author Tayari Jones–online.
