Around the Web: Diversity in Romance, Sci-Fi Stamps, the Library of Congress, and Submission Tips
Hello bookish friends! This week’s Around the Web collects a discussion of diversity in romance books, a look at some sci-fic themed stamps, a new blog from the Library of Congress, and some info about submitting writing for publication.
Diversity in Romance
Prompted by the success of Netflix’s Bridgerton, Zeahaa Rehman looks at who has traditionally been left out of romance books for The Walrus and discusses efforts to make romance a more inclusive genre.
I love a good literary tribute, so I wanted to share this new collection of stamps from the British postal service. The visually stunning stamps feature six classic British sci-fi novels, including The Time Machine, Frankenstein, and The Day of the Triffids.
Library of Congress Blog
The Library of Congress is launching a new blog all about preserving the library and its collections. It’s called Guardians of Memory: Preserving the National Collection, so if you’re interested in preservation of knowledge, you’ll want to check it out.
If you’re newer to submitting work for publication, you might find yourself a bit overwhelmed by the submission process. Writer’s Digest has some helpful tips, including this post on simultaneous submissions.
