PQ Weekly Roundup: 20 May 2022

PQ Weekly Roundup calendar graphic

Every Friday, the PQ Weekly Roundup collects the most shared links in our social media network—bookish articles, reviews, quizzes, recommendations and more—in convenient digest form.

  • May is Short Story Month! The form is super underrated, in my opinion. Broaden your reading horizons and discover some brilliant writing in these Canadian short story collections this month.

  • “One good thing about rejection is that it tells me I am still active, still writing. If I stopped working, I wouldn’t get rejected anymore.” Famous writers on rejection, in case you need a bit of a pep talk.

  • Are you a respectful book borrower, or is it time to brush up on your book borrowing etiquette?

  • This might sound a little strange but … perhaps the key to creativity is actually boredom!

  • Fascinated by this account of the printing process of William Blake, a poet and printmaker in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century (think Songs of Innocence and of Experience).


Hope you enjoyed this week’s book link roundup. Don’t forget, the preview of the documentary about George A. Walker, entitled Woodwriter, is tonight in Toronto! Click here for more info.
