‘The Writer’ Plans Hiatus After 125 Years in Print

The Writer magazine is on the sales block by its owner Kalmbach Publishing which means one thing for the 125-year-old publication: It’s going on hiatus after the October issue goes to print.

A letter to its contributors published on JimRomanesko indicates, “Our hope is that The Writer will re-emerge under the careful stewardship of a new owner.”
