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 17, 2017 (and more Post-#AWP17) Edition

There's a lot in the fridge this week...

> At the Masters Review blog, check out the Literary Terms Library.

> If you tweet, you may already know that on Twitter, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary feed (@MerriamWebster) is on fire. Vox recently featured the voice behind the tweets. More broadly, the New York Times reports that internet searches have dramatically increased all dictionary sites.

>The Write Life's "100 Best Websites for Writers in 2017" is available, and while 
this blog is not on the list this time around (breaking our 3-year run), you can be sure I'll be scouring it for new or unknown-to-me resources.

For those who want more post-AWP coverage, check my post from yesterday, and then try some or all of these: 

>Bethanne Patrick at Roar with "Some Feminist Observations from the AWP Conference.

> Kim Liao traces her growth as a writer via "In Search of Lost Swag: My Decade of AWP Conferences" at the Brevity blog.

>Publishers Weekly covers the political aspects in "AWP 2017: Politicized Writing Conference Ends With White House Vigil." There's also a round-up of all PW coverage.

>Full video of an off-site event, held at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, "Memory Transferred: Voices from the Descendants of Destruction and Displacement".

> Reflections, observations, and post-AWP thoughts, from: Amanda Lewan; Melville House; Kenyon Review; Emily Buehler (first timer).

>Finally, Assay: A Journal of Nonfiction Studies, deployed a clutch of writers to report on many panels and presentations. These include (and it seems more are being added daily): 


Have a great weekend!
