The editor and publisher of Peace Corps Worldwide have decided to narrow the focus of this blog, and limit articles to only those pertaining to the written works by PCVs and RPCVs, and those about the Peace Corps itself — much as was the case in the past when we began producing the newsletter RPCV Writers & Readers in 1989, and subsequently the website Peace Corps Writers.
This decision is based on the fact that with 50+ years of the Peace Corps, numerous books and other works are being published by RPCV writers, and we are overwhelmed with material, need to sharpen our attention, and bring the purpose of the site back to our original efforts to fulfill the Third Goal.
We especially appreciate, and thank, all of those RPCVs who have written blogs for Peace Corps Worldwide outside these criteria that we have discontinued, but it is time for us to adjust to the expansive Returned Peace Corps Volunteer writing community, and the ever-changing realities of the agency.
PCV and RPCV bloggers whose writings relate directly to 1) Peace Corps and 2) Peace Corps writers continue to be welcome to apply to blog with us and be part of our efforts. Additionally, we are always looking for those readers who would like to write books review for us.
Finally, we would also like to thank you readers for your continued support of what we do with Peace Corps Worldwide.
