I'm switching the writers group to a private blog. I will invite each member to be an author of the blog, so please send me you email address to firstname.lastname@example.org. The blog is there already, but only authors will be able to read it.
The idea is that writers might not want their senior colleagues / dissertation advisors to see their private struggles with writing. Also, by giving other members of the group full posting privileges, I won't have to do that with SMT itself.
