In its heyday, the site was viewed over a million times a year. Obstacles such as Facebook, hackers, content thieves and my own inactivity have punched that number down to about 20,000 views a month, and for a while I thought about shutting the site down entirely, but recently (as of September 2014) I decided to rebuild, with a new vision. I have updated the site with an aesthetic that in my mind combines eighties era computer design with the feeling of a seventies-era poetry chapbook. The focus is on content.
About John Hewitt
I work as a technical writer, with an eye towards information design. I have also been an editor, both of newspapers and literary journals, but that is in the distant past at this point. I have published one book of poetry, Extended Stay. I have written, but not published a couple of novels –fingers crossed that I will get one edited to my satisfaction at some point. I have a BA in Creative writing and a MA in English. For some of the articles I write, I feel as if I am an expert, for others, I am merely an enthusiastic amateur. Take from my writings what value you can.
