Tumblr Takes The Brooklyn Book Festival!

This Sunday, 9/21, hundreds of authors and plenty of your favorite publishers, bookstores, and librarians will be at the Brooklyn Book Festival. If you can be there, you totally should. But if not, our team of Tumblr Correspondents will be able to make you feel like you are with photos, gifs, drawings, quotes, writing tips, advice, reviews and more.

Follow this ace team at lastnightsreading, bookstalker, pith, yeahwrite, brooklynbook, jenhedonia, brooklynbrooke, and twentysomethingvagabond, or stick to books.tumblr.com where we’ll post their highlights all day long.

Went Out for a Slice, Took a Tumblr

September 7, 2014

Signed up for the 4th Annual Slice Conference earlier this year, along with a one-on-one with an agent, hoping to scare myself into typing to “THE END” this summer. Well, it worked! Thank you, sliceliterary, for bringing together some intensely interesting and interested writers for a welcoming conference! 

As a bonus, I got a crash course in the wonderfulness of Tumblr from rachelfershleiser, inspiring me to drag my mildewed blogging cap out from under the sofa and stick a new feather in it. (It doesn’t hurt that I’ve long admired ceilck's weird and wonderful Tumblr from afar.) 

Here’s a place for writerly blatherings that make non-writer Facebook friends roll their eyes, a place to display some little snippets that please me even if they’re not all that fleshed out, a place to share shameless pleasure in my own visions of the odd and the beautiful. Like Snoopy, Jack White, and a Love and Rockets superfemme all rolled into one, if such a thing could be put into words. 

Welcome!
