september 14: round-up (recs, links, calls for submissions)
Happy Tuesday! I hope you’re all doing well and taking good care of yourselves.
A few housekeeping things:
I am now offering editing and tutoring services through my website. I’m happy to adjust rates for anyone interested but on a tight budget. Hurrah!
I have also been collaging obsessively. You can buy one (usually for under $10) here. They’re handmade, one-of-a-kind, etc. etc.
Now: the good stuff.
My sole recommendation this week is Horsepower by Joy Priest, which I’ve been gushing about on Twitter and to my friends for days now. One of the best books I’ve read this year (and [x] I’ve [x] read [x] many!).
