Hundreds of us got word recently that Red Room, a hospitable and collegial site for writers of all stripes, is calling it quits after many years of providing an invaluable and irreplaceable writing/blogging/social platform.
Bummer. Major Bummer.
The email came from founder, CEO, and Editor-In-Chief Ivory Madison. It recommended we check out another site, Wattpad, and said that all of our work would be transportable soon but, frankly, after doing so, I’ve decided against it. Red Room, like all other really good things, is one of a kind.
Right now, all the other writers I’ve encountered there are busy trying to find ways to make sure they can stay in touch & not lose what they’ve worked so hard to cultivate.
It’s like the last day of summer camp: everyone’s running around with their address books, promising to stay in touch.
I’m doing the same.
