I've made some small changes to the blog. First, I added some new literary blogs to my list:

--Paper Cuts is written by Dwight Garner, of the New York Times Book Review. I’m usually leery of blogs that might be disguised corporate shills or part of some grand marketing scheme, but that isn’t the case here. Rather, Garner uses the resources of his position at the Book Review to delve deeper into books and authors. There’s also a weekly interview. (Unfortunately, I see that he’s on hiatus until September 3. But there’s lots to read in the archives, and this one deserves a daily stop.)

--Rate Your Students is for all you teachers out there. Get advice, vent, laugh, and cry with your fellow profs. If the thought of “back to school” is like fingernails on a blackboard, definitely check this out!

--If the ranting from teachers doesn’t scare you, the MFA Weblog is helpful for anyone who is thinking about getting an MFA, applying to a graduate program in writing, looking for information on various programs.

I also organized the contents of the blog by the each posting’s identifying label/s (on the left). Now if you’d like to read all the guest essays, simply click on the “Guests in Progress” label to pull them up.

Hope this is helpful. As always, suggestions are welcome!
