the algonquin in cyber-ia

For those of you reflecting on the lonely life of the long-distance writer, check out Michelle Rafter's list of ten virtual cocktail parties for writers.

Were she alive today, Dorothy Parker herself might be found hanging out at any one of these joints, most likely the Red Room. From the post:

10. The Red Room (Free)

Classy enough for Dorothy Parker, this virtual community boasts of being the online home of many of the world’s greatest writers, with members such as Amy Tan, Salman Rushdie and Candice Bushnell. Conversations on books, freelancing, writing and reading happen in the site’s Clubs section, which has scores of writing-related categories.
