- Intern’s list of the “Ten Best Things You Can Do For Your Novel”
- Joy Castro hits the nail on the head with a letter addressed, “Dear Hegemony”
- Speaking of hegemony…Jackson Bliss bravely iterates his encounters with the literary hegemony; he received a litmag rejection that states, “I don’t see why race matters here…”
- Michael Chabon gives his take on the Bay Area lit scene; so refreshing in a world that is all, “NYC NYC NYC!” (I love New York City, but it can’t be the only place in the world for writers).
- It’s writing colony season and thus the following is a perfectly timed and comprehensive blog post by Nova, on Writers Colonies. And ahem, yours truly contributed to the post about my time at Hedgebrook.
- Since it’s writing colony season, might as well dredge up a guest post I wrote over at Writerland about various writing residencies and conferences.
One response to “Links”
I’m a little disappointed that the Chabon article focused on the very successful and the very dead. I would have loved for them to kick Gene Yang, Yiyun Li, or ZZ Packer a little press.
White people don’t think of themselves as white and rich people don’t think of themselves as rich (always “middle class”). The editor literally doesn’t see why it matters. Unfortunately, the rich, white majority of your literary journal audience won’t get it either. Hegemony, a tough nut to crack that.
