It is a misnomer for a professional website that advertises creative writing classes and other media content to fail to regularly update the data.
In Boston, there are three primary purveyors of professional writing classes: Boston Center for Adult Education, Mediabistro.com, and Grub Street. However, while the content on BCAE’s and Mediabistro’s websites are dynamic to server databases, the content of Grub Street is clearly static.
Mark Cahill at Vario Creative: Static websites remind me of the dark old days when someone would hand us their product catalog and we’d simply put it on line, in the hopes someone would find it and buy something.
Take a look at Grub Street’s self-titled opportunities for writers. The links work, but the accompanying captions describe contest deadlines from 2004 and 2005. Moreover, the copyright line at the bottom of the page is dated 2003.
Mediabistro and BCAE use dynamic content, linked to server databases. Grub needs to get with the times.
