Our New Website! - Writer's Digest

Our New Website!

Publish date:

Hi Writers,
It's my great pleasure to announce the launch of our new and vastly improved writersdigest.com website. The new site is light-years ahead of our former website in terms of navigability, searchability and overall design. Check it out and have fun with it. We're going to start posting new content on a daily basis, so you'll want to check in frequently.

If you've linked to this blog or any other writersdigest.com blog, there are new URLs. This one is now: http://www.writersdigest.com/writersperspective.

Also, on another happy note, there's a wonderful article about Writer's Digest running via the AP wire. Thanks to AP writer Hillel Italie for his thoughtful portrayal of our legacy magazine.

The AP story is running all over the place. Here are a few of the links:

International Herald Tribune

Yahoo! News


The Boston Globe

San Francisco Chronicle

The Town Talk (Louisiana)

The Oakland Press (Michigan)

Real Cities (Kansas)

I'd love to know if the story runs in your hometown newspaper. Please leave me a comment.
And I'll get back to my archival wandering tomorrow as scheduled.

Lots of great things happening!

Keep Writing,
