I wanted to let you all know that I’m leaving my position as editor of Writer’s Digest effective October 10. I’ll be checking in and trying to chat more before I leave.
The reason I’m leaving is that they’ve appointed a new editorial director (Jane Friedman, editorial director of Writer’s Digest Books) and we have very different visions for the direction of the magazine, so it seemed like a good time for me to check out.
I don’t have a plan B yet, but I’ll be sure to let you all know if I do figure it out.
Hey, if nothing else there’s always writing, right?
I’ve always said, I was a writer when I took this gig and I’ll be a writer when I leave. It’s turned out to be more than just a decent gig, though, it’s been an amazing ride. Thanks to all of you for sharing the ride with me.
