Since 1997, you’ve been coming to to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Goodbye and good luck!

I want to take a moment to thank all of you for participating in this course. I regret that this course is going away, but remember that there are plenty of places for novice writers to get feedback on their works, and to create a workshop community. Some are free (for example, and others ask for a modest fee (for example, the Online Writing Workshop for SF, Fantasy & Horror). You can also look at bulletin boards at your local library or s.f. bookstore for workshops looking for new participants.

I’ve enjoyed this class very much. I hope that the material and feedback has been useful to you; and I hope that being part of this online community has helped you toward your writing goals.

Remember: do your research, push and poke at everything to squeeze every last bit of interest and speculation from it, keep an eye on your plot, give your characters plenty of room to breathe, and most of all...have fun!
