BBC Get Writing site to close

MediaGuardian (free registration required) reports that staff have been told that the Get Writing site, which cost around £400,000 to launch with an attendant nationwide campaign of creative writing workshops, will close down just months after it was relaunched.
The site, aimed at adults who want to develop their creative writing skills, was launched in September 2003 and relaunched a year later as one of the centrepieces of the BBC's online learning strategy.
As we reported on this blog a few months ago, the site is aimed more at beginners than writers wanting to submit work to the BBC, but it was always rather unclear what it's relationship was with the BBC Writersroom.
