An email excerpt from Sara Wilson, who departed Los Angeles Magazine on Wednesday:

... I’m leaving to edit the Huffington Post’s new divorce section... In future, please direct all submissions for the Coming Attractions section or the online Guide to Shayna Rose Arnold ( address is srarnold@)... If you want to reach me with divorce-related pitches (or just to say hello!) I’ll still be in L.A. ( address is sara.wilson@).

Congrats to everyone!
