We are dedicated solely to novel excerpts. These pieces should feel like they come from novels we want to read—they may pop us into the action and leave us hanging at the end. Each issue includes 6 winning excerpts from our two annual contests (January to February, and October to November).

Each issue has a guest judge. Look at their novel(s) for an idea of styles they may be most interested in, but remember that we also push our judges to look at all genres and styles!

Writera

I didn't start writing until I retired from teaching. I did publish on Kindle two long form humorous short stories and an anthology of my humorous and eerie shorter works.

 I'm working on expanding my style to include 'literary' erotica.

Larry1

I spent a career as an appeals lawyer, writing legal briefs in the United States Supreme Court and in almost all of the United States Courts of Appeals.  I've written law review articles and legal surveys for bar journals.  I've studied creative writing in college and in graduate school and I've attended several creative writing workshops at different locations around the country.  I'm currently editing a completed novel.

Rutabaga Writer

I wrote and published extensively throughout the course of a twenty-five year academic career (I was an anthropologist), thinking it would satisfy my life-long craving for writing. It didn't. What I really wanted to be writing was fiction and creative nonfiction. I've made a transition now, and I am working on a revision of a completed novel, as well as on bits and pieces of personal narrative/memoir. I've taken a novel writing workshop with Michelle Wildgen, and a memoir writing workshop with Chris Chambers, both at the Madison Writers' Studio. I would like to find (or establish) one or more groups with fiction and/or creative/narrative nonfiction writers who are interested in the ongoing process of producing work, workshopping it, revising it, and pushing it through to submit for publication. I love to read the work of other writers and offer thoughtful and constructive feedback, and I love to discuss the process of writing. I've learned that I do my best work when I know I will have friendly and critical readers waiting for me to show what I have.

Deirdre Hennings

I’ve been writing fiction and poetry for around six years and have published creative nonfiction at Litro/UK ( https://www.litromagazine.com/every-satu...  ) and poems at Yale's The Perch, ( https://en.calameo.com/read/004070067728... ) U. of Toronto's Ars Medica (https://ars-medica.ca/index.php/journal/... ) and Pulse Voices ( https://pulsevoices.org/index.php/poems/... )   

I’m seeking a critique group in fiction that will help me shape chapters of a longer narrative through discussion, an editor’s eye. I live in Los Angeles with my husband but am looking forward to seeing NYC again when COVID has passed.
