NEWS ABOUT SITE

Hi all,

A series of unfortunate events has resulted in my decision to shut down the WEM site. I will run it until the end of January.

If you want to stay in touch with me beyond the site for potential leads, projects for which I need partners, etc., please contact me offline.

I had great plans for the site, but unfortunately, the complexities outweigh the positives.

Thanks.

Michele

    So sorry to hear this. I would also pay a fee for this service. I hope you will consider this option or ask for some volunteers to help running the site. It is so useful. I’ve volunteered in the past for this site and would be willing to do so again.

    Please let us know how to stay in touch. I can’t find your email address on here. This site has been an invaluable resource over the years. I completed the survey and was willing to pay a reasonable subscription (yearly) fee. I also volunteered to help with the site, but was never contacted to do so. Have you thought about offering to pass this off to anyone else? I totally understand your decision and wish you much success in all your future endeavors.

    Best regards,

    Tonya

    I am so sad as well. WEM is where I found my first freelance job which has led to many more for me over the years. I read it every day and always look at interesting jobs! Is someone else considering taking over the site? If not, is there a way to keep the community together? I don’t even know of any other K-12 job resources as is this is the BEST! Can anyone share other sites with me?

  33. Melissa

    Thanks so much for all your work! Agree that I would totally pay a subscription fee for this website.

  34. Chris Forest

    Michele, Thank you so much for taking over the site and for running it. I have found it to be a valuable resource for so many reasons these past several year.

  35. Susan

    I am distraught as well! I have depended on this site to help with applying to freelance jobs. You and Laura have done a great job finding resources for this writing niche. I would like to stay in touch!
