I'm the author of two books of poetry, a poetry chapbook, and a volume of literary translation. I'm also the editor of a long-running reputable literary journal and manage several web resources for writers.
We at Variety Pack try to live up to our namesake! A bedrock of diverse voices, expressing a variety of arts & letters. We are open to both genre and literary. We have an aesthetic, but it's a broad atlas rather than a narrow stream!
Please read our guidelines carefully! Read previous issues, but also feel free to send us something that we haven't published yet. Note* Reading periods will be subject to change. As of next month, we will be reading for our fifth issue!
Hello fellow creators! I am currently writing my first adult fiction novel. I plan on a series but will be presenting my work(s) as stand-alones to start. I am looking forward to pitching my novel end of this year and beginning the next creation. I am also an artist, mostly charcoal and oils on canvas. I teach and translate as well. My dream is to be a full time author someday. I have a background in the sciences. Would love to join a group where there's a great drive to finish, edit, query, and hopefully publish. In the future, I will be looking for beta readers, sensitivity readers, and critique partners. Would love to learn from others' experiences and share all about my experiences as well as what I've learned from my research. Would be open to exchanging chapters for review.
