You’re Never too Young (or old)…the Summer “IT” Lists

This is just a quick post in keeping with our previous discussion on the importance (or unimportance) of an author’s age.  If you haven’t seen it, The New Yorker’s article, “Summer Fiction: 20 Under 40” lists its top picks of up-and-coming young authors, and seems to have plenty of people talking — some in angrier tones than others.

Check it out — you might find a new favorite, or get inspired to be featured on the next list.  And, don’t despair if you’re on the other side of forty — there are MANY sites creating their own lists; writers to watch over 40,…60,…80(!).  I don’t believe it’s ever too late to get started.  Here’s one site that looked particularly interesting.  

Keep reading, keep writing, and enjoy every minute!

  1. I must admit I’m excited to see someone making a list about writers under 40. The hot list used to be under 30, which basically meant the lists went, “Bret Easton Ellis, Bret Easton Ellis, Bret Easton Ellis…” I guess it’s true: 40 is the new 30. Too bad poor Bret is is 46 now.
