Mid-Week Field Notes–January 11, 2023

Field Notes

Happy 2023! Some very quick things:

  • I am leaning hard into poetry this year. I’m now a member of three Amherst Writers & Artists poetry-writing groups.
  • I am enjoying the weekend conversations over at Becky Tuch’s Lit Mag News.
  • The Jewish Book Council has announced the winner of the Fall 2022 Natan Notable book.
  • Interested in publishing a poetry collection? Here’s an interview with poet and poetry publisher Diane Lockwood that’s helpful.
  • A wonderful review of Ethel’s Song: Ethel Rosenberg’s Life in Poems (Calkins Creek, 2022) appears in the latest issue of AJL News and Reviews: “This gem of a historical fiction novel is a rarity in so many ways…Through her brilliantly crafted poems, Krasner employs accessible format and does a fine job in relaying one of the most complicated and heart-wrenching episodes in American history.”
  • Save the date, January 26, for International Holocaust Remembrance Day commemoration (which is actually January 27). The Mercer County Holocaust, Genocide & Human Rights Education Center, together with William Paterson University, Saint Elizabeth University, and Bergen County Community College, presents Dr. Barry Trachtenberg of Wake Forest University about “The United States and the Holocaust: Old Debates, New Approaches.”

What 2023 writing goals have you set for yourself?
