Here Comes the Sun

With summer around the corner, the Brevity staff slips out to the deck and into our summer schedule of waterskiing, forest hikes, and celebrating our vaccination status around the campfire. A new issue of Brevity comes out next week—you’ll love the beautiful essays and thoughtful craft pieces. Start making that summer reading list from Brevity book reviews (and please do drop your own reviews on Amazon and Goodreads of the new books you’re reading.) And stay tuned as well for announcements regarding our greatly expanded “Teaching Brevity” section of the website!

We’ll still be posting to the Brevity blog, on a slightly more relaxed schedule, and we’ll keep reading blog submissions at a summery pace. In June we’ll be rolling out a new feature—biweekly writer advice!—and we’ll be calling soon for your writing, editorial and publishing conundrums.

Meanwhile, tell us what you hope for from the Brevity blog. What pieces have stuck with you, and what do you want to see more of? Essay pitching tips, querying or submissions advice, writer’s life, journal reviews, writing craft, exercises to try yourself or teach? What haven’t you seen that you’d love to read on Brevity?

We’re so thankful to be sharing a writerly summer with you, beautiful readers. Let us know what else we should share. We’ll be on our inflatable pool loungers (Dinty’s floating on a wise giraffe, Allison’s on a toothy alligator, of course), ready to hear your thoughts. Swim up and join us.

Allison K Williams is Brevity‘s Social Media Editor

    I find the Brevity posts a real inspiration as they are; sometimes more so and sometimes less so but always read with care.

    I love this blog! Keep up the great work. I wouldn’t mind seeing writing prompts once in a while!

  • bethfinke says:

    Thanks for asking. I look forward to reading more “Teaching Brevity” pieces over the summer. They’ll help us gear up for the next year of teaching writing.

    Enjoyed reading this happy blog post, thank you for writing it. Now go enjoy your summery schedule these next few months!

    I’ll be floating up on a gray hippo with lipstick and a pink plastic tongue. Watch for me. Happy sunbathing!

    Xoxo,

    Thank you so much for Brevity in all its beautiful forms. Here’s to a happy summer for all of us.
    Thank you for asking about what features we’d like to see in Brevity. Here’s something I need help with: I’m delighted when my fellow writers publish a book and want to support them however I can. Writing reviews is one of the best ways, so the question: how to write an effective book review? And if I can add a second question: what makes a good book “blurb”? (I get asked to write these, too.)
    Of course, any and all of the Brevity blog posts are welcome in my in-box. Thank you.
