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: Links for Writers, February 15, 2013 Edition

> Interesting Q&A interview with Phillip Lopate over at Beyond the Margins, on the occasion of the publication of his new book, To Show and To Tell: The Craft of Literary Nonfiction.

> Do you know about the writing section at Alltop? There you will find links to the five most recent posts for some 50-plus varied writing blogs.


> If you are not on my newsletter list, you can read the Valentine's Day edition online here (which includes a sweet drawing you might like).


> Artists' grants and maybe even residencies designed for writers with children?  I know many folks who'd want an application.


> Eight good tips for marketing your book on Facebook.


> Elizabeth Gilbert responds to the discouragement Phillip Roth reportedly gave to a debut novelist about the writing life.


> Sometimes I recommend a good book on writing craft. For nonfiction writers though, sometimes I just point to the craft essays archive over at Brevity.


> Finally, cool slide show of bookmobiles, past and present. Enjoy.


Have a great weekend!
