Editorial Focus

Talking Writing is an online monthly literary magazine that supports writers and those interested in literature by encouraging creative discussion of the writing process. Each issue of Talking Writing features the work of a poet, a fiction or creative nonfiction writer, and a visual artist or photographer. TW includes long reviews and personal essays, pieces that are often hard to place in print. We are committed to a new kind of magazine, one that’s dynamic, talky, inspiring, and not too dusty.

Tips From the Editor
