[WRITING] Five writing links: Wangersky, Kelly, Wrede, Harris, McKean

  • This Russell Wangersky column, published (among other places) at the Charlottetown Guardian, makes the perfectly valid point that journalism is much more than stringing together some tweets. It’s a craft.
  • The Broadside Blog’s Caitlin Kelly talks about her experience enjoying the camaraderie of journalism, faced with shared challenges and menaces.
  • Patricia Wrede writes about how perfectionism can be the enemy of good writing.
  • Malcolm Harris writes at his Medium blog about the history of changing pay rates for writers.
  • Literary agent Kate McKean writes at The Outline about how a good story is, by itself, not nearly enough for a book. More is required.
