Raka Chaki

I’ve been recognized for my writing by being selected through a competitive process to work with an editorial team at Farrar, Straus and Giroux (Macmillan) on my unfinished novel manuscript. I collaborated with Katherine Jacobs, a senior editor at Farrar, Straus and Giroux for Young Readers, on my manuscript about an Indian-American girl’s experiences with vitiligo, a condition involving skin pigment loss that is stigmatized in India, and how she copes through creative writing. Usually, a publishing company will not even consider an incomplete manuscript, so I'm incredibly proud and honored that a company like Farrar, Straus and Giroux wanted to work with me when I was only 22 years old before I had even graduated college. While being supervised by Joy Peskin and Simon Boughton, the imprint's editorial directors, I consistently met strict deadlines of submitting 25 pages every two weeks and exceeded editorial expectations. By the end of my three month collaboration, I had produced 140 rough pages, polished 50 revised pages, crafted a plot structure, and drafted a compelling plot pitch/synopsis. Additionally, I collaborated with Conde Nast's chief digital beauty editor, Emily Gaynor, to publish a nonfiction essay titled "Vitiligo: My Journey Through Art" about my personal experiences with vitiligo. My storytelling was so impactful and powerful that the piece was featured as Teen Vogue's central headline for a full week, resulting in full audience engagement. I've recently graduated from Rutgers University with a B.A. in Engish and a Certificate in Creative Writing, and I'd love to be part of a writing group as I complete my novel manuscript and submit my poetry, short stories, and essays to literary magazines and other publications.

Eleanora H. DeWiltshire

Hello, 

I am an engineer who is finally getting into writing. I am almost done with the first draft of my first novel, a steampunk mystery set in an alternative Victorian era in what (was) Virginia. I have many other ideas for sequels, other books, and a collection of short stories. 

I think that next (while I let my novel sit before editing) I will write one of the short stories and try to submit it to a contest. 

I love the research portion, and history especially. Right now while writing I'm also trying to soak up as much as I can learn about the craft, while networking and setting up my brand as an author. 

It would be lovely to work with a group on this site. 

Sincerely, 

Eleanora

My groups: Feedback

H. S. Contino

I'm a bit of a hodgepodge. I'm interested in a variety of subjects and as a result, I write in a variety of genres. I've also had a mixed experience when it comes to publishing. I have traditionally published two non-fiction books (addressing regional maritime history), but I have also had some success self-publishing as well.

Honestly, I'm not sure of my expectations for any potential writing groups that I might join. I would love to find a supportive environment where I could recieve (and give) feedback and writing advice. But, I've had bad luck in the past tyring to find a writing community. fingers crossed that I have a better experience this time! :)

Jack Tarrou

Hello! My name's Jack, I'm a 22 year old writer living in Washington, near Seattle. I've written on and off through college, taking several creative writing classes to hone my skills. The most intensive piece I've written was a feature length film script, but I've also written a television script and series bible, as well as short stories and poems.

I often find maintain a habit of writing difficult, thought since I graduate in a few weeks, I'm hoping that I'll have the time and motivation to write more, and I hope that through finding a group of likeminded artists will help me stay motivated in my writing, as well as provide me an outlet for constructive criticism of my work.

I am an occasional writer, meaning that I write for myself occasionally. As a teacher, I write all day long; little of it is inspired or creative. When I taught a Creative Writing class recently, I wrote with my students and re-awakened my (fantasy) writing self.  For many years events moved me to write poetry. For the past 2 years, I have been experimenting with children's stories. I am looking for a group that will challenge me to write and keep me accountable. I don't like journal/memoir writing because I end up navel gazing and whining. I want to develop my voice and my craft writing stories and short, funny, poignent poems. I love pop-culture and super heroes and fantasy; I want to experiment with the tropes of heros and princesses to reveal "real" superheroes (no, I don't have a clear idea of what that means) and flip the "princess" script. 

In short, I am beginning to explore the idea of being a writer, and if I can sell a story or poem or two, that would be exciting. Writing is an outlet and a hobby for me. I am not looking to make my living as a writer. I am looking to find some confidence as a writer and develop my own craft and voice.

ProsetrySheIs AKA Billie

Poetry, essays, and other creative non-fiction works are "by" Michelle (T.) Simon. My poetry in particular is influence by many renown poets: Poe, Shakespeare, Ocean Voung, Lucille Clifton, Rita Dove, Issa, and Basho, to name a few. Some of my poems, including a couple that have won prizes, are published in online and printed journals. I'm in submission mode for one collection: Homage to My Lips and Other Partial Blessings. I have about four additional collections in progress.

My short stories, flash fiction, and novels spring from the mind of my alter ego, C Billie Brunson. So far, two books are in public circulation--Heart of Malice (2015) and Six Strings (2021). Neither of these fit in any specific "genre" box.  If you asked me to name writers who've most influence my literary prose, I'd say Edgar A Poe and Clive Barker. But other novelists I hang around with have compared my storytelling to the way Steven King and Jean Koontz write.

I have several other manuscripts in the pipeline. Subliminal is the one getting most of my creative attention these days. You can read it on Wattpad. Just search: C_Billie_Brunson. Also, I spend a whole lot of my time on Twitter every day, splitting my tweets between 2 accounts: @pRoSetrySheIs and @CBillieBrunson. So, if you look me up there, chances are good that we'll be able to connect in real time.

What I look for in a writing group is support, advice, creative growth and sharing our works.
