Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Three quick things:

1. Happy New Year! If you haven’t seen it yet, the January Practicing Writer newsletter has gone out to subscribers. It will remain online for the rest of the month, until the February edition replaces it.

2. The newsletter highlights a newly updated resource on this website: a page to help you identify “Where to Publish Your Work.”

3. I am feeling reasonably satisfied with the work I accomplished over the holidays (deadlines—met!). But I confess that after the long New Year’s weekend I am finding it a tad difficult settling in to work today. Any tips?

Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

I’m just back from my first visit to the Association for Jewish Studies annual conference, held this year in Boston.

But, pictured above, you’ll find one book (left) that I purchased; one book (right) that I won (as part of a team that tied for second place at Monday night’s trivia competition!); and in the middle, a teaser for a book that I’m looking forward to catching when it’s published in 2019.

More soon!

I’ve just returned from a study-and-writing retreat, and in a few days I’m setting out again for a(nother) conference. I’m working on a couple of projects that are under wraps, so I won’t describe them here and now.

But I can report, happily, a poetry acceptance! This is for a Biblically-inspired poem that will be published next month, and I’ll be delighted to share it with you as soon as I can. Continue reading ›

Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Three quick things:

1. The past week brought another rejection of my first full-length poetry manuscript. BUT, my to-do list includes completing submissions to three venues with upcoming deadlines before year’s end. AND, among the nice feedback I’ve had to my latest piece (more about that below), I’ve received a couple of additional suggestions/leads to check out. And I will do so! Continue reading ›
