Around The Web: Imagining the Future of Publishing, NaNoWriMo Tips, and The Shaded Choice Awards
Welcome back to Around the Web, our weekly round up of digital bookish content. This week, I’m sharing a vision for the future of publishing, some NaNoWriMo tips, the Shaded Choice Awards, and an account of becoming a Zoom poet.
Future of Publishing
Quill and Quire doesn’t usually publish fiction, but since the November issue looks at the future of publishing, they made an exception. Check out Terese Mason Pierre’s short story which imagines a future book launch.
It’s November, which means we’re officially into National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. If you’re participating, you might enjoy this Guardian article, in which novelist David Barnett talks to some famous authors and offers some tips for making the most of the month.
Shaded Choice Awards
The Goodreads Choice Awards aren’t the only reader’s choice awards to open for voting recently. Sparked by a tweet by booktuber Princess (Castle Library), The Shaded Choice Awards are meant to shine a spotlight on books by Black and POC authors released this year.
Becoming a Zoom Typewriter Poet
Brian Sonia-Wallace unexpectedly found work with a multinational tech company this year, but the job wasn’t exactly a typical tech role. Brian was hired to help employees stay engaged while working remotely by writing custom poems for them. Find out more about this unusual endeavour on Lit Hub.
