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.

Farewell Writing Room Community

As many of you already know, the Writing Room will be locked as of 1 July 2012. Through the participation of members, the Writing Room has been a place of inspiration, creativity, and support. Thank you to everyone who has shared creative work, offered up feedback and support to fellow writers, posed interesting and challenging questions, and shared knowledge learned through experience. Much of the writer’s work is done in solitude, but community is an important—and necessary—means of growth.

The Writing Room will remain viewable and searchable. Essentially, it will become an archive. Please feel welcome to revisit guest author threads, past years' threads in which you declared your writerly goals, your own creative work or the work of others, or any other memorable posts.
I wish you all the best in your writing adventures. Though this is good-bye here at the Writing Room, I hope our paths cross in other positive ways out there in the writing world.

Re: Farewell Writing Room Community

But wait. If I can post, is it locked?
