Good Nonfiction Writing Blogs

Hello, Web Writers,
I actually subscribe to very few blogs — I can’t tolerate too many emails urging me to read bloglogothe daily poem, etc. — but I do subscribe to Brevity’s Nonfiction Blog. I have found several occasions to link to a post for use in my writing course. The blog posts often ask writers to discuss their contributions to Brevity Magazine — a quarterly publication of flash nonfiction.

I also like a blog called Essay Daily. I have used this post, by an author named Stephanie G’Schwind, for classroom discussion. In it she discusses one possible structure of a long narrative essay, an assignment in my course. I think these sorts of posts can be easily accessible to students, introducing ideas that might be more complicated to discuss in traditional textbook format.
