Maya Angelou, a member of the writer's portal Redroom.com, says, "There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you." Thankfully for her and other writers, they can now share their stories, new works, trials and tribulations, and find a creative social network at Redroom.com. This new site bills itself as the official home of the world's greatest writers, and it allows people to connect with the authors they love. A few of the esteemed writers will take part in a special panel discussion about the need for a writers' network, as well as the importance of sharing one's products of creativity.
