Penguin to Close My Artist’s Way Toolkit Site

myartistswayPenguin is shutting down the website My Artist’s Way Toolkit on May 15th 2014. The site was based on Julia Cameron‘s book and supplied interactive tools designed to encourage creativity.

The site, which has been available to readers through subscription, included writing exercises, creative affirmations and a toolset for organizing a user’s own work.

Here is more from the website: “Before the site shuts down, you should export all of the great content you’ve built within the site. You will find explicit instructions on how to do just that here. And don’t worry, all charges from February 1st on will be refunded, which you will see reflected on your next credit card statement. If you have any questions, please reach out to us atappsupport@us.penguingroup.com.”
