Since my book came out in March, I’ve been looking for ways to further share the research with more people, and offer insight and inspiration for those moving through divorce and on with their lives. I’m thrilled to announce the launch of Splitopia.com, the first-ever comprehensive “divorce wellness” website. This is the beginning of what will be workshops, lectures, online classes and community.
We have great stories from so many talented writers. I’m particularly proud of the personal essays that writers have shared, as well as the “1 Question, 3 Lawyers” section of honest legal input on the kinds of questions that can keep anyone facing divorce up at night. George Washington University law professor and author Naomi Cahn has been hugely helpful with this column, and I’m grateful for her efforts.
David Callahan, a.k.a. “my ex-husband,” has been a supporter and champion of Splitopia.com, bringing to bear his experience from his own content site, InsidePhilanthropy.com. Years ago, I published a dating book based on fairy tales, and speculated that after Cinderella got divorced from the not-so-charming-when-he’s-your-husband-after-all prince, they remained friends, and his support helped her launch her own line of fashionable footwear comfortable enough to clean the house in. I feel a little like the character in that imagined sequel, really benefitting from the good friendship I’ve formed with my once-spouse.

We’ll be rolling out more content, courses and community events in the future. I’m looking for great writers, and people with good divorce stories for the new site. Please write to me with suggestions, questions and ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
