If last month’s links were heavy on rejection, this month’s links are focused on race and support. 😉
- Coffee and support over at Book Writing World. This little 2 minute movie is charming and sweet and cute; I laughed so hard my ass disappeared.
- Racialicious’s scathing review of SATC2. More scathing than Roger Ebert’s review. Like. (p.s. While I am NOT a fan of the SATC movies to date, I am a HUGE fan of the tv series).
- Important post on how to read and respond to literature of color over at Racialicious (my favorite new blog discovery this week, can you tell?).
- Via 8asians.com: Olivia Munn debuts as Sr. Asian Correspondent on The Daily Show (reporting on “The Spilling Fields”–how the BP oil
spillgush/tragedy/nightmare has affected Vietnamese fishermen in the Gulf)
- A pretty good litmag list!
- Thoughtful article on Daniel Dae Kim (that’s the dude who played Jin on L O S T) on SFGate’s Asian Pop.
- The “I SUCK” club of writing, as detailed by Elena Mauli Shapiro
- A great round up of revision advice, some of the most reasonable insight I’ve read in awhile about editing and revision
- And a last minute addition that is a must read for anyone interested in joining a dialogue about what MFA programs can and cannot do, and the start of a dialogue about privilege in MFA programs: Tayari Jones shares with her readers snippets of Danielle Evans’s very “Smart Conversations About MFA Programs.
Happy clicking and reading!

Those SATC2 reviews are art! Racialicious is usually interesting and occasionally very, very good. Carmen Van Kerckhove recently quit the race biz, but you probably would have liked her stuff too.
I was excited to see her, but thought Olivia Munn was terrible (maybe tough to share the stage w/ the whole cast?) Anyway, let’s hope she has a better go ’round next time.
Thanks for the links! Looking forward to Elena’s post.
