Friday Finds for Writers

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.

    Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

    I’m not sure I’ve ever had a week in which three of my poems have been published!

    FullSizeRender-51Paean to a Precious Possession

    See the typewriter in this picture?

    It’s the subject of a new poem, “My Mother’s Olivetti,” that’s now up on Writing the Words as part of a National Poetry Month celebration.

    (Fun fact: I wrote the poem in response to a themed call from another venue. From which it was rejected.)

    And yes, that’s me in the photo, getting an early start on the life of a practicing writer.

    But wait–there’s more! Continue reading ›
