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.

  • Authors—does this piece about being edited ring true to you? I’ve always suspected that my editorial comments are heart-breaking/rage-inducing to my writers, and yet, for the most part, they’ve always been ridiculously kind and accommodating back to me.

  • Open Book has a fascinating peek behind the scenes of a small press, focusing on the role of the editor at Coach House Books.

  • Is the book blurb system broken? On those pesky little endorsements that sell books—and weigh heavily on writers.

  • This is an interesting piece community literary organizations and all the work they do to support and nurture writers at various stages of their careers.

Thanks for catching up with us! We hope you found some entertaining and enlightening book links in our post today. Keep following us for more of the best of the bookish Internet.
