MSN Ends Contract for Books Section Blogger

MSN’s Page Turner blogger Mary Pols tweeted last night: “Books blog gone.”

MSN ended her freelance contract at the blog where Pols wrote about books every week. In the Storify story below, we’ve collected her Twitter posts and some commentary from her online readers. FishbowlNY has the complete memo that MSN sent about the cuts.

Readers can contact Pols at her personal blog. As you can see by the posts below, many more MSN freelance writers also lost work yesterday as well.
