In 2013, Writing in the Modern Age was hatched from the idea that writers of all backgrounds and stages of their careers needed a safe haven of sorts, a place to come for advice and encouragement during their journeys. Eight years later, it has become so much more, embracing book lovers of any genre. Writing in the Modern Age is not only helpful for writers, but also readers who are searching for their favorite new author.
