We at Variety Pack try to live up to our namesake! A bedrock of diverse voices, expressing a variety of arts & letters. We are open to both genre and literary. We have an aesthetic, but it's a broad atlas rather than a narrow stream!

Please read our guidelines carefully! Read previous issues, but also feel free to send us something that we haven't published yet. Note* Reading periods will be subject to change. As of next month, we will be reading for our fifth issue!

Robert Croll

I'm a Spanish–English literary translator with a particular affinity for creative nonfiction from Latin America; I've worked on a wide range of texts including books by Ricardo Piglia and Hebe Uhart. I've also begun writing my own fiction and essays, as well as more experimental hybrid texts involving photography, and am hoping to find a community of writers with similar aspirations to trade ideas and encouragement.

P.S. I love editing and am happy to provide extensive feedback and line edits on other writers' work.
