THE BIG NEWS THIS WEEK

THE WEEK IN WRITING

- Writing professor Aruni Kashyap has a beautiful piece about the prevalence of writing cariactures, rather than characters, when creating diverse works.

- Nerdist has teamed with InkShares to host a Sci-Fi and Fantasy writing contest!


THE WEEK IN READING

- Friend of the blog Brandy Colbert rocks this week's Dear Book Nerd podcast! (and you can listen to her First Draft podcast interview, too!)

- Emily St John Mandel writes about the prevalence of THE ________'S DAUGHTER titles and comes to some surprising conclusions -- apparently they make for titles that readers don't forget.

THE WEEK IN PUBLISHING

- We spy our very own Kaitlin Ward and her forthcoming debut, BLEEDING EARTH, in this PW write-up of Adaptive Books!

THE WEEK IN OTHER STUFF


- The new This American Life tackles public school education in the U.S. and is a deeply troubling, but necessary, listen.
