Dear Writers’ Rumpus Readers,


In a few days, we’ll be taking the blog offline for the month of August so we can do some remodeling. Behind the scenes, we’ll be changing things up to make our blog easier to browse, search, and navigate. While we’re away you’ll see a reminder that we’ll be back soon, instead of seeing the site.


We think you’ll like our new look!


See you in September,


Writers’ Rumpus
