From today's Publisher's Lunch....
" The Writer, which was due to go on hiatus with the
October 2012 issue after more than 125 years of continuous publication,
has been acquired by Madavor Media, a privately held niche and
enthusiast media company, from Kalmbach Publishing (which also sold off
Birdwatching Magazine in the same deal.)"
Hopefully, this will mean the hiatus will be cancelled.
