I am thrilled to introduce the new website for Grist: The Journal for Writers and hope you enjoy exploring all it has to offer. A very special thanks goes out to Jill Knight of Jill Knight Design for being so generous with her talents, and so conscientious and enthusiastic throughout the entire site-building process. We appreciate your hard work more than we can say. Check out the new format for our Grist: Online Companion, where we publish some of the best fiction, nonfiction, and poetry we receive during our reading period. Then stop by our brand new section, The Writing Life, which features postings from writers that cover everything from craft to publishing to participation in writing communities. There you will also find the latest news about Grist as well as the locations of our events information and book reviews (coming soon!) Back on the homepage, you’ll find our Grist Essentials: more about us (if you’re unfamiliar), our submissions guidelines, and our subscription and merchandise options. You’ll also find a link to details about our very first contest—“Pro Forma”—which we will run in the spring. As you can see, our new website is the first in many new adventures. We are very excited about what the future will bring, and we hope you’re excited to come along with us! Many thanks to those who have supported and continue to support us with your reading, writing, and subscribing—you have made all of this possible!
