Welcome to this week’s round-up of posts! I hope you had a wonderful week and I hope that you’ve enjoyed what we’ve been posting here. Of course, before we begin, I’d like to remind you that the Spring 2013 reading period for the Jet Fuel Review is currently open. The reading period will be open until March 15th. You are all encouraged to send in your poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and art to be considered for submission to the Review. You can send your submissions to this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to receiving your work!
This week’s installment of Writing Advice took on the problem of showing rather than telling in your story. This can be one of the most challenging things that writers work on, and we hope that our advice post gave you some insight. This week’s Discussion Post talked about a new exclamation mark proposed by a photographer. It’s a pretty neat idea and we’d like your opinion! Head on over to the discussion post and leave your thoughts in the comments.
This week’s Poem from Slate was entitled History Lesson from Anh Hai, by Duy Doan. Lucas’ Film Corner was all about Melton Barker’s film The Kidnapper’s Foil this week. What’s the story behind this film? Check out Lucas’ post for more information! This week, Liz’s News of the Book returned with a discussion on the practice of writing and whether it’s any fun at all. Check out what Liz had to say in her post. And finally, the blog had a new addition this week in the form of Lauren’s Fictional Friday. This week she focused on the hit YA novel, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. Be sure to check it out!
Stay tuned next week for more posts from the Jet Fuel Review!
