Three quick things this week:
- This week I watched a video about sending out one’s writing into the world, and this speaker viewed submissions as a way into the literary community. I hadn’t thought of it that way. So I’ve been going through my stacks of unread literary magazines to find pieces I like and looking up the writers’ bios.
- My issue of Poets & Writers arrived yesterday. If you’re preparing a poetry manuscript, there’s a great piece by Nancy Reddy about “Order Out of Chaos,” how to organize your manuscript.
- As part of its membership campaign, the Association of Jewish Libraries is holding an Author Showcase on Tuesday, November 17, at 7:30 pm ET.
