New Web site Launching Soon

Coming very soon now, The Writer's Center will launch its brand new Web site. Maybe you've seen Charlie discussing the benefits of the new site here on First Person Plural. What you see below is the new home page template. It'll be slightly tweaked by the time it launches, but this is mostly how it will appear. It'll be a major change, and a very needed change.
