I'm a poet in Atlanta. Currently working on creating my manuscript that will be sent to contests and/or publishers. I enjoy form and structure in poetry, but I also enjoy taking that knowledge to new heights and playing with the possibilities that poetry can offer. I am looking for a group to help me stay motivated, accountable, and provide valuable feedback in my poems.
Tilted House Review is a biannual arts and literary journal made by hand in small batches in the small city of New Orleans. Through this outfit, we strive to cultivate a creative and communal unit from and for the city. And while the door is wide open for New Orleans’ minds, it remains open for the rest of the world’s. Everyone is encouraged to submit.
We like both experimental and traditional work. We like dark. Surprise turns, nuance, metaphor. We want poems we can smell. Fiction that sickens. Art that double-takes. We like hard-hitting endings. Polemics. Protest. Confession that isn’t like every other confession. Sonnets, American sonnets, sonnets all splintered. We like work that has its heart on its sleeve—and nothing on the nose. Crawl into our veins and sit there a while.
I am a new author. I do not have experience within publishing neither have I been active within the writing community. I am looking for a group of objective people with similar interests to talk about writing and review over our each other's work. Right now, I am currently working on a multigenerational book about my family's history in Puerto Rico and the U.S. It has aspects of magical realism mixed in throughout the story.
Besides writing I enjoy reading adult fiction, fantasy, and romance books. I also have experience working with social media, so I can help with beginning to market your stories through your social media from start to finish.
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.
I have a work in progress of eight linked essays that use memoir to discuss more universal issues such as LSD, war, Greek myths, desire, and a few theories about our material reality. I've been using writing dates throughout my writing career and I adore them and the writers I meet with. I meet writers doing fiction, experimental theater, cultural studies, nonfiction, poetry and so on. I prefer writing dates where there is periodic critique but most of the time is spent writing.

I have been a digital non-fiction writer for as long as I can remember now, and I have recently made the switch into fiction. As a relatively young fiction writer with borderline unrealistic aspirations which my ambition would never allow me to consider unrealistic (crazy delusional thing, ambition), I'm looking to meet other writers in different milestones of their writer journeys and learn as much as I can from their stories and the paths they've treaded on. Apart from being new to the world of fiction I'm also new to this crazy concrete jungle of a city and I would love to socialise with writers from all walks of life in any way, shape or form this pandemic allows us to.
