Ana Chevalier

I'm a full-time freelance writer. I work mostly within legal, technology, and financial verticals. In my 'off' hours, I'm a fiction writer. While I have written (and published) several books and multiple plays, short fiction is my first love and remains my preferred literary vehicle for storytelling. I'm thrilled to have recently pivoted away from the world of journalism with an increased focus on short fiction :-)

KimbelW

I'm a writer and former journalist turned educator. After earning my MFA at UCR, I disappeared for a couple years to the other side of the world: Australia and New Zealand. I write both creative nonfiction and fiction, and am currently finishing a YA novel. I'm open to both meeting in person (I've had my shots!) and online.

Stuart H Nager

I believe in the fantastical.

In 2011, I created two blogs: Bornstoryteller and Tale Spinning. The first was filled with essays about education, the good and the not-so-good, and a few other pertinent subjects. The latter is my Creative Fiction blog, flash friction-filled, poetry-laden, serialized tales, and whatever interested me along the way. My range tore through Fantasy, Horror, Science/Speculative Fiction, Humor, Thrillers, and Crime. I dabbled in various styles, having fun with Pulp Fiction, Hard-Boiled Noir, Victorian England, and as many sub-genres of the genres that interested me. 

I have been published, online, in three anthologies, two novellas, assorted Flash Fiction and Poetry groups, essays, and had the privilege of creating/hosting a Shared World Blog Challenge. An editor in England has an eco-system/non Dystopian novella in his hands that was requested. The 42 Word Anthology has two of my pieces accepted and awaiting publication. Submissions are out flying around. Finally, I lead workshops in Creative Writing as well as three online writing groups (Critique; Generative; and Poetry).

Sarah Z. Sleeper

My first novel, Gaijin, came out in 2020 and I'm hard at work on my next one. I'm also a published essayist, short story writer and poet, and a former journalist. I have an MFA in creative writing and highly value the support of peers in the literary world. I have a writers group where I live, but would love to join a virtual one, both for moral support and writing critique. I also love to read and discuss novels, essays, short stories, poems and article.

Greg Rohloff

I was a journalist for more than thirty years, which has equipped me to listen, to observe, to question, to gather details that are meaningful and interesting in stories. I have taught college composition courses for the past ten years. I have had a deep interest in writing fiction -- mythic truths as opposed to factual truths -- for as long as I have written. Influences include Ernest Hemingway, John Updike, Thomas McGuane, Toni Morrison, James Baldwin, and T.C. Boyle. My MFA thesis (2019, University of New Orleans) is a story collection about making amends. I would like a writing group that includes both short fiction and novel length.

Nadia Sakkal

I am currently writing my first novel. It tells the story of a young American gay couple who move to Saudi Arabia. I am looking for a writing group who can give me constructive feedback, mainly what points in my story they think I should expand on to better introduce the reader to the Saudi culture. It would be a bonus if I can find others who grew up in Saudi and can give me additional ideas that can make the story more authentic.
