What happened to Urbis?

I have occasionally used Urbis as a writing site. It had a pretty good credit system and the feedback I got was pretty helpful. So, I was pretty surprised when I went there the other day and saw this message:


Application Error

Ouch. Something isn’t right.

If it’s our fault, we’ve been notified. If it’s your fault, we forgive you.

Let’s just move on with our lives.


I did some digging and it appears that the site has been down for months. I guess that’s it, which is a shame. The more venues for writing, the better.

For those looking for a serious place to workshop your writing, check out TheNextBigWriter.  I’ve been on there for years and have gotten quite a bit out of the site. You have to pay $7.95 per month but as Urbis shows, the free stuff doesn’t always stick around.
