New ! We have moved.

The Write Room has moved! Our new URL is http://www.thewritemag.com/  and you subscribe here http://feeds.feedburner.com/TheWriteRoom.

Until the transfer of files is complete, our former home here at WordPress.com will serve as the archive site for the magazine.  There is still excellent reading here.

Now that we are independently hosted, the site will continue to evolve and as always, we strive to bring our readers quality content from new and established writers.  Thank you for staying with us through our construction and moving phase.  We hope you enjoy our new site.
