►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.
