Book reviewing in newspapers and magazines has faced pressures
that have often undermined good criticism: an overwhelming number
of books, a need for funding, a complex relationship with publishers,
and the inherent difficulty of being accurate and fair. As the field
moves online, cyber-reviewers will face many of these same pressures.
Can we create new and better traditions--or will the new media repeat
the failings of the past?

Gail Pool has been a columnist, reviewer, and review editor for many
newspapers and magazines, including the Christian Science Monitor,
the Cleveland Plain Dealer, and the Women's Review of Books. Her
essays have appeared in such publications as the New York Times,
Columbia Journalism Review, and the Chronicle of Higher Education.
She is the editor of Other People's Mail: An Anthology of Letter Stories,
and she lives in Cambridge, where for many years she taught Writing
for Publication at the Radcliffe Seminars. Best Blogger Tips

Would love to but will have to wait for the residency events in January. Have fun!

Oh, I meant to ask you: what happened to your links in the sidebar of your blog? I used to use them as an easy way to navigate to other blogs but now it's gone.

Tempting but I have something to do both nights. You'll have to give us a full report.

TI, I don't know! I updated the format so I could get those boxes on the side, and I thought the links would stay. But I guess not. I'll have to add them back in when I get a chance. Thanks for pointing it out!
