Last November, The Airship covered eight writers who almost died before their time and how it affected their work. It was a fantastic list, but it failed to include any female writers and received a fair deal of social media shaming for it. It was embarrassing, to say the least; that’s just not what we’re about here at The Airship.
Now, we couldn’t apologize without evening the scales, so we’ve compiled a new list — and we’re not calling it “Women Writers Who Almost Died Before Their Time” (that’s looking at you, Wikipedia). Here are 10 more great writers who we almost lost before we found them:
- Saturday is Trump's 100th day in office. We found an average of about one false statement per day from him and his aides so far 💯
- A luxury event called Fyre Festival turned into a total shitshow. Headliners dropped out and guests tweeted photos of bare-bones food and lodging 😱
- American Airlines gave workers a raise — to the highest pay in the industry — and Wall Street is furious. The company's stock has been falling since Thursday.
- A teen had a remarkably petty response when her ex asked for his prom money back: She paid him in all pennies 😏
