Last Thursday I found out that after the October issue goes to print, The Writer is going on hiatus. Sad, sad, sad.
The Writer was established in 1887 by William Hills and Robert Luce, “to help all literary workers.” They published the magazine in Boston where it remained until it was by Kalmbach who has put the magazine up for sale — thus the hiatus.
Now, let’s just hope that it is purchased and not by just anyone. But by someone who loves it as much as so many writers do and also has a wee tiny clue how to run a magazine today.
Fingers crossed for us all!
