I actually heard about this site through the University of Florida’s English Graduates listserv, but recently the folks at LitDrift contacted me regarding posting something about them, and so here I am.
I became a follower of LitDrift the second I saw the site, for several reasons. First, it’s a site about literature, and generally speaking, if it’s about literature, I’m in. Second, they have a feature called “free book Fridays” in which they give away a book to one lucky commenter…every Friday. Free books? Every week? Again, I’m in. Third, the posts are actually quite good, discussing everything from books to writing from all directions (they’ve really got their bases covered). There are writing prompts (daily, apparently), tips, videos, and all sorts of other goodies at LitDrift.
LitDrift isn’t limited to the three things that drew me in, though. They talk about all manner of things there of relevance to literature-oriented folks, and the posts are, in my opinion, of quality. If you’re interested in a new site focused on literature, I suggest checking them out. I like the site and some of you might like it too.
