- This fun Mrs. Dalloway-inspired (!) mixtape over at The Paris Review
- This thought-provoking and upsetting essay by Saeed Jones on BuzzFeed, "Self-Portrait of the Artist as Ungrateful Black Writer"
- "Let's Get Personal: On Full Financial Aid at Fancy Schools," a great and informative article at The Hairpin, by Nicole Cliffe and Nicole Soojung Callahan.
- New to the Lost Coast, by Joshua Butts. Fabulous poems here! There's a whole section of poems named after Southern Ohio roads...I really enjoyed these. Here's one short poem from the book, a whopping 8 words including the title. It's impressive to me how well it works! It's inspiring me to want to write a short poem like this.
And you, friends? Happy weekend, whatever you're perusing...
