Our upcoming May/June issue will feature our annual Best 101 Websites for Writers. As a result, we would love to know how the internet has impacted our readers. For instance, I no longer get to collect rejection letters from publishers; instead, they pile up in an inbox.

Our formal question: How has the internet changed the way you write and publish?

And if you grew up with the internet, then let us know how it's enhanced the way you write and publish—because the internet is always changing. Share your answers with us in the comments below for a chance to be published in the May/June issue of Writer's Digest.

  • Answers can be funny, weird, poignant, thought-provoking, entertaining, etc.
  • Remember to include your name as you would like it to appear in print.
  • Deadline for commenting this time around is March 17, 2020.
