Friday Finds for Writers


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

  • Ever wonder how authors might connect with book clubs? Tara Lynn Masih offers some advice.
  • “There are no interns or other readers here: every single poem sent to Poetry is read by an editor whose name is on the masthead. And we get about 150,000 poems a year!”—Don Share, quoted in a recent “Editors Talk” post on the Frontier Poetry site.
  • In “Back to School at 64,” Anne Rudig describes her experience in the Columbia University nonfiction program.
  • For me, the word “chapbook” most frequently evokes associations with poetry. But there was a session devoted to nonfiction chapbooks at the recent conference of the Association of Writers & Writing Programs (#AWP18). And Lisa Romeo has summarized it for the Assay website.
  • And remember: If it’s Friday, you’ll find a fresh set of #JewLit links over on My Machberet. (Including, this week, more from #AWP18.)
  • Have a wonderful weekend.

    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.
