magazine is going on hiatus after 125 years. The Journal Sentinel
reports that the magazine's Wisconsin-based publisher, Kalmbach Publishing
, is putting the magazine up for sale. The hiatus will begin with the October 2012 issue. The magazine recently celebrated
its 125th anniversary.
editor Jeff Reich issued the following email statement to contributors: "I'm sorry to announce that The Writer
magazine will go on hiatus after the October 2012 issue, which is in production now. Kalmbach Publishing Co., which owns The Writer
, is currently looking for a buyer for the magazine, and our hope is that The Writer
will re-emerge under the careful stewardship of a new owner."
This is sad news. We hope The Writer
will find a new home soon.
