shameless twitter plug

who, amongst us writers, is the greatest Tweeter ?? Mark Leidner, Blake Butler, Melissa Broder, Patricia Lockwood, and Rauan Klassnik (ha ha) are all GREAT Tweeters–

but if I had to name just one it would be Russel Swensen (Scribbly Mouse)–

whatcha say ???

Three Things I’ve Found Interesting Within the Sphere of ‘Booklyfe’, or: Booklyfe 3

This is what all talent/literary/federal agents look like.  Its code.

This is what all talent/literary/federal agents look like. It's code.

1.  Literary agent Nathan Bransford of Curtis Brown, Ltd. is offering readers the chance to play Literary Agent for a Day over at his blog. It’s pretty simple:  Read the posted queries, pick the queries you think belong to books about to actually be published, win ______ (he hasn’t specified the prize).

2.  Via Matt Briggs, an essay from Frederick Barthelme published in 1988. I’m sure quite a few of you have read this already, but I hadn’t.  I think the essay is definitely worth talking about, still.

3.  Interview Magazine writes about Five Dials, a .pdf/email distributed literary journal.  Hey, who knew this interweb thing could be used for like, literature and stuff?

I’ve already blabbed about this stuff elsewhere, if you’d like a quicker river.
