News You Can Hopefully Use

I recently sent out my fifth newsletter, The Woolson and Alcott Chronicles. As I sat down to begin writing, I couldn’t think of much “news.” I had maybe two items of interest. Then gradually more came to me, including the first two reviews of Constance Fenimore Woolson: Portrait of a Lady Novelist, scheduled giveaways on Goodreads, and a reveal of the publisher for my next book, tentatively titled Reading Little Women.

Then some related news came to me: the opening of a movie tangentially related to Woolson and an exhibit related to Little Women.

Then in “Other News” I created a new feature that I am really happy about and want to expand in future issues. In addition to various smaller writing projects I am engaged in, I included a list of links to my favorite reading online this month. I think I’ll move this up to the top for next month’s newsletters. These are some amazing articles on women writers (including recently discovered manuscripts by Charlotte Brontë and Edith Wharton), looking for ourselves in literature, and the exclusion of marginalized voices from the literary world. I hope that readers will find this curated list of value to them, in addition to all of my writing and publishing news. There is a vast world of fascinating material online, but it can be difficult to find it. So when I stumble upon a gem, I tweet about it and now I will hang onto it to share with my readers.

You can read my latest newsletter here. If you like it, I hope you will subscribe. (There is a button in the lower left hand corner.) I’d love to have you along for the ride, and I pledge to include even more “news you can use” in future issues.

Happy reading!

  1. I loved your newsletter, Anne! And was completely inspired by it. We’re on a similar schedule-I wrote mine over the weekend for launch tomorrow. It seems to loom on my to-do list, until I get into it and realize there’s so much I want to share…
