‘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.

For those of us with bylines, it’s particularly bittersweet because chances are, we’ve all read and devoured their pages at one point or another.

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.”

Also, pointed out by the site via Media Industry Newsletter, The Writer has hosted “some of the most illustrious talents and bestselling authors in American letters: Somerset Maugham, Ray Bradbury, Sinclair Lewis, John Updike, Joyce Carol Oates and Stephen King, among them.”
