For lesbians, by lesbians! We would LOVE to see more lesbian fiction, flash fiction, ghost stories, poems about nature and gardens, mysteries, humour, fantasy, and more!

Don't self reject! We can't wait to read your work.

Sheila K. Elliott

       The work that I've been most satisfied with was written pretty much the traditional way, with the first draft written independently, then revised (several times), and finally presented in a workshop setting for suggestions regarding craft and the overall impact of the piece. I have considerable experience in workshop settings and have attended many non-credit workshops, but I don't have an MFA.

Hi! I am looking for a writing group that can help to push my creative boundaries. I am a visual artist, however, I have always loved writing and do it in my free time. I know I have a lot that I can still learn, so I am looking for a group where I will learn and grow, recieve constructive feedback and improve my writing skills. I recently had an article accepted into an art education publication that will be printed in the coming year, which I am very excited about. That will be my first publication.

Hiwa

I am Shiwani Kaushal from Ludhiana.I did my postgraduation in English Literature, after completing Bachelors in Commerce. Yes, I play with numbers as well as words. While in graduation, I discovered my passion for reading and writing that I had never let go of. 
So, talking about my poems, I call them metamorphic poems because while writing them I overcame my fear, insecurities, and traumas to an extent and evolved into the human being I am today.

We aim to publish art and words for the future by artists and writers who believe they're carrying, on their hunched-over-computer shoulders, a pretty heavy yet very pretty burden—to offer us all a way into ourselves so that we may come back out with the wisdom required for positive change as individuals, and as a society. All accepted work will appear both online and in print.

  •  

We aren’t certain there is “good” and “bad” art—only honest and dishonest art… but we’ll get back to you on that. Suffice it to say, we really don’t want to be gatekeepers. We want to be a blank canvas. 

Press Pause will never have a social media account. It will never promote itself (or get into online debates) on social media, so that the art that is shared can be appreciated within the embrace of a lovely now-uncommon silence. 

Submitting to Press Pause will always be free.

The Twin Bill is a quarterly online literary baseball publication founded in 2020 at the start of the pandemic. We celebrate the rich history of the game while also recognizing its vibrant present through essays, fiction, poetry, interviews, and visual art. We welcome writers of all levels and experiences.

We want to hear your story about baseball. It generally helps if you focus on a single game or moment as opposed to listing multiple ones.
