I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday! As always, I'm grateful that you take the time to read my blog, comment and pass it along.
> Have you explored the new website for Creative Nonfiction, the journal? This short piece, by a family physician and CNF writer, made some interesting parallels between those endeavors. (If you're a visual artist, editors are seeking illustrations for future issues.)
> If you were considering a subscription to Poets & Writers magazine (or if it's on your holiday wish list), now might be a good time. Their offices were flooded during superstorm Sandy, and part of the special $35 Friends rate will go towards restoration.
> Speaking of P&W, here is their list of 27 small presses worth following on Twitter.
> Narratively is a new site devoted to literary journalism about New York City, and according to MediaShift will offer original in-depth storytelling, as well as Q&A's with
authors. This week's topic is "The Flipside of Food."
> A writer on Facebook noted he'd gotten an email rejection from a literary journal early on Thanksgiving morning. Gee, thanks! Well if he submits to this new online venue, at least he won't get one on...his birthday.
> Finally, according to young adult author Angela Scott, Editors Hate Everything. She's right!
Have a great weekend!
