If you have not yet heard about Bloom, let me introduce you to the new literary site devoted to writing of authors "whose first major work was published when they were age 40 or older." Founding Editor, Sonya Chung--author of the novel Long for This World, faculty at Columbia University and writer for The Millions--saw the need for the site after her launching her "Post-40 Bloomers" series at The Millions last year. Bloom is a serious, thoughtful site full of compelling essay reviews, interviews, audio excerpts and more. I'm excited to be a contributing writer. Bloom that has gotten the attention of The New Yorker, The LA Times and The Atlantic. And now, I hope, Red Room writers as well.
