Literary News takes a vacation

Literary News is taking a summer hiatus while we continue to add content to our dynamic new Web site. If you haven’t seen the Forum’s fresh look, visit often at

Here you will discover our First Draft Newsroom, an events calendar, monthly book reviews, and our revised, digital Contemporary Alabama Authors Directory, complete with a convenient registry.

At, you may also listen to Alabama Arts Radio, watch video readings by some of our favorite authors, and read what our member bloggers have to say about the writing craft.

The Forum encourages you to continue forwarding your literary news, and we will spread the word through our Newsroom, Twitter, and the Alabama Writers’ Forum Friends page on Facebook.

The Forum values your continued support. At, you will discover convenient links to electronically join, renew your membership, or donate to the Forum and its many literary programs.

We’ll see you in September with a new issue of Literary News!
