It’s an axiom that the Internet affects our life in ways that we could not have imagined at the end of the past century. In the mid-1980s, Beryl Belsky painstakingly wrote and edited pen-on-paper academic papers, erasing text with Wite-Out. Today, Belsky owns and manages a website that features the work of writers whose prose and poetry might otherwise remain in the back of a drawer.

The Writer’s Drawer is an international, intercultural writers’ showcase. The website has been up and running since February 2012, and includes a wide range of genres, including short stories, poetry, essays, memoirs, travelogues, book reviews, promotions and links to writer-related websites and blogs.
