My sixth yearly list of favorite websites (and first since 2013), these are the sites (not mentioned in previous years) I have most recommended to friends family, and Largehearted Boy readers over the past year.
0s & 1s Reads is an online bookstore that also hosts a variety of interviews with authors as well as essays on writing and literature.
Books & Authors with Cary Barbor is a podcast that features interviews with authors and publishing professionals.
Divedapper does one thing, and does it extremely well: fascinating and smart interviews with poets.
Literary Hub may be the best literary site on the planet, featuring author interviews, excerpts, essays and daily news from the world of publishing.
Music & Literature features underrepresented artists (musicians, writers, and visual artists) from all over the world.
Musicians write about music at Talkhouse Music.
The combination of food, music, and cocktails make Turntable Kitchen an everyday read. The mixtapes are the perfect accompaniment to meal preparation.
