From Robert Lee Brewer: "The 2011 Writer's Market is now in bookstores, which means it is time for me to focus on the 2012 Writer's Market. We're always updating and adding new listings, but I need pitches for articles on the business of writing. If you have access to a truly great writer interview, then yes, pitch me on that, but mostly I'm looking for articles on the nuts and bolts of freelancing. For instance, I'm interested in negotiating contracts, handling taxes, and making pitches that never (or almost never) fail." Pitch by August 31, 2010.

Here's something I mentioned on my other blog at the end of last week: Samuel G. Freedman will once again lead a "Writers' Seminar on the Jewish People" for "writers between the ages of 22-35 interested in developing their skills in writing about the Jewish people in the United States and abroad." This year-long seminar meets multiple times in New York City. The seminar is free, and there is no application fee. Submit your application by September 5. (I wish I were still young enough to apply! Thanks again to the Jewish Book Council for this update.)
