Copywriter by day, novelist by night, I'm able to quench my writing thirst on the 9-5, but I'm looking to quench my soul with this writing group.
I have so many ideas that I want to share, but between imposter syndrome or being slammed with too busy a schedule, my ideas never seem to leave my Google Docs.
Overall, I'm looking for encouragement, accountability and advice from all you talented, beautiful writers.
The purpose of The Champagne Room, beyond creating a physical space for collecting and sharing writing that the editors believe in, is to generate, collaborate, and commune. The editors remain devoted to making this literary space physical with the annual publication of a print-only journal. They intend to use these pages and the space beyond to explore authenticity, becoming, and illumination, and they are seeking to expand the definition of a room: what it is made of and what it contains.
Since its conception, TRANSOM has included poems alongside poet interviews that dig deeper into an examination of poetry as it lives, in the world between poets and readers. TRANSOM is a poetry journal that continues in that tradition, inviting not only poetry but lived and living experience.
A transom is the bar of wood that separates a door from the window above it. What comes over the transom is lobbed, has grace, arcs in.
TRANSOM is expansive. We encourage a wide definition of poetry.
I teach a class, the laws of international trade and shipping, which routinely requires me to review assumptions and the stories we tell ourselves about the world and our roles in it. Retirement is liberating. Time for new stories and to wade into new tides
When I was more active on social media, I maintained a wordpress site where I occasionally posted poetry and other bits. Romancing the Crone with Words – Poetry and other Writings by Ella Dodson (wordpress.com)
I would like to find a small group of writers who are curious and have a sense of humor about the writing process and life. Ideally we could meet biweekly or monthly online.
My name is Brittani Ann and I play in a few different genres, mainly poetry and creative non-fiction. I have a minor in poetry and have been writing on my own since I was young but I am now looking to get a bit more serious with my work as well as engage and share with other writers. I am craving the community of those who are looking to critique, workshop, encourage, discuss and learn from one another.
I have finally started following my dream of becoming a published writer. I am working on different forms of poetry and would like to dive into fiction next. I have a lot to learn and need feedback.
I have always enjoyed writing words that come to me. My main genre is poetry. I tend to write about feelings, observations and rhyme. Looking to connect with others to better my craft.
