Oh no! So sorry to hear that. It was only the reference to a writers' haven, but actually, on reflection, I think it's correct.

I was reading it as one writer - their work, their haven. But actually, if you're referring to Medium as a whole, it's a haven for many writers. So the apostrophe is correct.

I'm sorry you've got flack! I felt bad seeing Maverick's piece, firstly because I felt it was perpetuating the myth that my work was full of errors (not true - I wouldn't dream of offering something so bad). It had been thoroughly proof read, first for the magazine, and then again for Medium! Secondly, he basically said I didn't try to discuss it with her, which is totally untrue.

I think we were all feeling raw. I just thought they either needed to review their editorial process, or their submission guidelines - because there was a massive mis-match, and that's not fair on contributors. I've kept my head down since. Didn't expect anyone to leave.
