Here I blog about writing, editing, reading, books, submissions, freelancing, getting published (and rejected), journalism, revisions, life after the MFA, teaching writing, and living the writer's life. Welcome. BUT -- if you are a writer: Write first, read blogs second.

Friday Fridge Clean-Out: The Back-on-Schedule Edition

►The FreshYarn site is back up, featuring a new personal essay each week.

► The Literary Writers Conference is being held in Manhattan next weekend.

► Those who write opinion pieces might want to know about this development at AOL (This links to a note intended for PR folks, but the editorial contact information is still helpful for writers wanting to market their op-ed essays.)

► It looks as if this hybrid online/print-on-demand literary journal project has potential.


►And finally, for anyone who finds themselves dealing with, shall we say, uninspired academic writing, this fun little site makes a handy comic diversion.

Have a great weekend.

Thanks for the 'non academic' link. I'm knee deep in reading papers this weekend ... cracked me the heck up!
