Beautifully Written

Hello,

I have been writing since I had the formal ability to express myself through a pen and pad.  Writing is a passion of mine and has provided me with comfort in times of stress, excitment in times of happiness and solace in moments of pain.  The genres that I mostly compose are through the lenses of poetry, nonfiction and my personal perspective of bipoc voices.  I am looking for a community of like minded indiviuals that share my love for the craft.  In addition, I would also like this space to serve as collective where we can all share our writings and provide support and encouragment.  Virtual groups only.

SJ Luke

Hello!  I've been writing since I was a young girl. I love words! English class was always my favorite in school.  I had great teachers who taught me the basics of writing.  I'm an avid reader and my writing was inspired by many stories I read as a child and teen. I'm also into science fiction, comedy, anime, and fashion. I love watching programs in those genres. My stories and poems are informed by my experiences and the world around me. I'd love to meet other writers to discuss craft, publishing opportunities, and review each other's work.

Vega

I'm a later-in-life emerging queer feminist writer of color. I've been blogging for several years, and have recently rediscovered my absolute love of exploring the life and the world through words and language.

I'm mainly working in the realm of creative and narrative nonfiction, bordering on but not quite memoir.

I'm excited to join this community!

Raia Bay Area

I'm a creative nonfiction writer based in the Bay Area. My work has been published in Tap Literary Magazine, Two Hawks Quarterly, Make/shift, and the Interdisciplinary Writer's Lab 2019 Anthology. My work contends with illness and healing, embodiment, psychology, anticapitalism, and structures of feeling. The writers I most admire include Lily Hoang, Melissa Febos, Katherine Standefer, Maggie Nelson, Claudia Rankine, Bhanu Kapil, and Lidia Yuknavitch. I would love to form a small writing group of like-minded writers to meet twice a month on my deck (or somewhere else comfortable and COVID-safe outdoors) to write and occasionally share our work. Please contact me if you're interested!
