I am an Atlanta poet who has been active on the open mic and slam poetry scene since 2013. I have had the pleasure of being on the Java Monkey Slam team and the Art Amok slam team in Atlanta and have competed in numerous poetry slam competitions. I am currently working on my second chapbook "Out of Focus" and branching out into the essay writing genre. My creative background is also pretty diverse as I am also a singer-songwriter and an theatre actress. I'm hoping to connect with writers of  varied genres and to be able to share my work and get feedback. Community is what helps us grow as writers.

I'm a late bloomer to dedicated writing. In July 2021 my first collection of poetry will be published. I tend to write pulling from my ancestors spirit's of trauma and marginalization. I often write about what haunts me.

Madison Nevin

I've been writing fiction my whole life as a hobby and I'm starting to take it more seriously now as a career. I have a Bachelors Degree in English Literature from the Univeristy of Washington and I currently work as an Editorial Production Associate for The New Yorker magazine, and have had other editorial jobs in the past (no writing jobs unfortunately.) I'm looking to improve my writing, my voice, and hone in on my style, as well as make some significant progress on my novel! I'm also looking to start submitting stories to literary magazines/journals, fellowships and MFA programs and could really benefit from some feedback and the opportunity to learn from other's writing.

Anne Lederberg

I'm feeling for routes through a sprawling landscape of documentary fiction and other disciplines such as memoir, history, three-dimensional objects on exhibit, and performance. The broad topics might include diaspora, genocide, mothers and daughters, secrets and lies, and monuments, memories, and memorials.
