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.

We are a small press committed to the discovery of writing that transcends the ordinary. We believe in developing and encouraging the creative writing voice in our journal, in the press, and throughout communities. It’s our desire to enrich the world through publishing people, and their stories, their poems, and their books with the hope that they move, inspire, invite, create, empower and more.

What we like V Press LC loves fresh and original writing. The best works are those that get into the bones. However, some works we will publish simply for the joy of reading them. Submit and surprise us. We love to be surprised. 

What we don’t want V Press LC does not want to read about child abuse, graphic sexual deviations, horror, or anything that is just plainly too graphic for general adult audiences. If it disturbs the general reader—it’s not for us. We are not interested in: works targeted for children, self-help, erotica, textbooks, or technical/professional works.

Hola! I'm a senior writer and poet and my aim is to spread peace and happiness through my writings. I've self-published some of my poems on a few poetry websites. 

Looking forward to some inspiration, feedback, and tips in a writing group :)

Only high school literary publications and lavish praise from teachers and professors from high school through grad school. (Except one PhD candidate student teacher who I allowed to destroy my confidence!)

I kept a daily journal from eight grade (1956) until 1977. I started journaling sporadically again about 10 years ago. I entered one 2000 word personal essay contest - with no results. I've attended only three professional writing workshops. I've taken several continuing education writing classes, one writing group for about four months, and all the writing classes available on Master Class. 

I've been trying for the past three years to write...a memoir? A personal history? A family history? My Mother's story? My Dad's story? How much I've become my Mother? I can list a dozen reasons why I can't get started. I'm sure it boils down to fear and lack of confidence. 
 

ive had a passion for reading since before I could read and was thrilled when I realized I was actually recognizing and reading words! I've been in numerous book clubs, some successful, others not so much. So, I guess I'm pretty much a beginning writer.

Fecund highlights exceptional works of new abundance. The magazine is a medium through which writers and visual artists are exquisitely showcased and paid for their work. Fecund publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, theory, criticism, fashion writing, and visual art via interdisciplinary media (text, audio, video, new media).

Although we don’t conform to one aesthetic, we respond to work that challenges traditional forms or embraces liminality.

BLP is currently accepting engaging stories in search of a great home. Our main themes explore the liminal world where anything can happen. We love authors who are willing to take a chance and explore the concepts of “other” through a variety of genres. Magic isn’t just for fantasy readers anymore.

If you think your manuscript pushes the boundaries and will leave us breathless, we want to hear from you. Although all manuscripts go through an editing process, your book should be at its best before you submit. The best way to be noticed is to send a professional query letter and a strong summary.
