The Wednesday Web Browser

Deonne Kahler reports on the results of her personal write-a-thon.
==========
Hannah Tinti interviews Jennifer Haigh regarding Haigh's recent One Story story, "Desiderata." It's an excellent story, and fans of Haigh's Baker Towers will be interested to learn which characters from the novel reappear within it.
==========
Via Tayari Jones: The fabulous Honorée Fanonne Jeffers has started a blog, Phillis Remastered, which promises to cover "gender, politics, writing, race."
==========
Gina Barreca discusses "Literary Italian-America," complete with a recommended author list.
==========
Midge Raymond shares the sad news that Eastern Washington University Press will close next June and takes the opportunity to plead the case of small presses.
==========
And for those who love water--and New York City--there's a new site to explore: Underwater New York, "an online anthology of stories, art and music inspired by the underwater objects and phenomena in the waters that surround New York City."

Thanks for the shout out, Erika! What's interesting is that in my writing sessions since the write-a-thon, which have been an hour or two long, I feel disappointed. Only 850 words? Not good enough! Our internal editors are so crafty, aren't they? Critical voices able to turn any experience into "failure." Funny.
