"Who" is correct

Many thanks to my Dad, Preston Browning, Jr., who let me know that in fact "who" is correct in the following sentence:

Plus a bunch of nonfiction writers who I'm sure are just as cool.

This was in a previous post about Sweet Literary Journal -- I had thought that the correct usage in that sentence was "whom," but Dad, the expert, says that: "'who' is correct since it's the subject of the verb 'are.' Using 'whom' in such a construction is sometimes done today but it's incorrect."

Thanks, Dad!
