writershouse.net is coming

We're in the process of developing a new Web experience with free resources for local writers. We'll do the initial launch for the Wordstock Festival. Stay tuned for more Web info. And please drop me a note if you'd like to be included on the beta test site list.

The Feedback Machine

Wow, the one week mark is approaching since this somewhat obscure blog was posted. We've learned that basically the writers are legion who want a dedicated, quiet, creative space connected to the literary community here in PDX. The emails and comments continue to gain momentum in my inbox. Please keep them coming. And please use those little surveys.

Many of you have noted that the survey function is often not working. Sorry about that. Please refresh, try again. It's a new, free tool on Blogger and I think they're still working out some kinks.

Meanwhile, the marketing research continues. We're compiling a report on the 10 hottest Writers Rooms across the country and trying to interview the minds behind scenes in each location for feedback and support.
