Hi! I've been writing professionally as a copywriter/blog writer/marketer for 10+ years. I've been writing personal prose and poetry for much longer but haven't shared much of it. I'm looking to put more focus on my creative writing and would love to find a group to connect with. 

I'm also a creative coach and dancer and love the combo of dance and writing for opening up creative channels.

Holly K

I'm a mid-career poet with two award-winning books and am currently serving as Poet Laureate of Arlington County. I'm also a college professor and work with a local small press so am an experienced reader of poetry manuscripts. I'm looking for a supportive group of poets interested in everything from general writing/professional support to feedback on specific work (including individual poems and/or complete manuscripts). I'm a white woman but I write a lot about immigration (my husband is a political refugee), racism (critiquing white supremacy), and environmental destruction. The past year has made me aware that geography is no longer a limit in terms of a writing network and I'd love to connect with people beyond my local area.

SAND is an international journal publishing risk-taking work from the diverse range of creatives making visual art, poetry, fiction, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, and translations. We specifically look for work that subverts, work that pushes the boundaries of form, message, and voice in ways that we will feel, physically, in our bodies. We have long amplified underrepresented voices and encourage submissions from writers and artists who are women, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, disabled, working class, international, and/or geographically underrepresented.

Submit early. Fiction and poetry close when the submissions cap is reached. To find out if your work is a fit for SAND, read back issues and visit our "submit" page at sandjournal.com.

Another Truth Pixie

I am a graduate of the 2019 GrubStreet Writers Memoir Incubator, a nine-month program to produce a fully realized manuscript.  I have also recently been enrolled in a Catapult class to revise a novel-length manuscript.  I've been published in Ruminate, Windhover, and The Coil, among others, and have had residences at the Vermont Studio Center and the Elizabeth Bishop House.  For the past 12 years, I have taught argument at Boston University.  Besides writing, I race walk and bake bread.  I have a 20-year-old son, and I live alone--great for writing, challenging in a pandemic.

I've been in writing groups before and find that they work best when there is structure and predictability, along with rigor around craft.  I'm serious about my work, but also looking for the camaraderie that comes from artists with a shared sensibility.  I've written two book-length memoirs and two novels as well; at the moment I'm hoping to join a literary fiction group that meets at least once a month.

My name is Melanie, but I'd rather not use it in my writing profile.

Undead Goathead

Hello, my name is Cheryl,  and I'm a writer from Santa Fe, NM. In addition to maintaining my music blog, Undead Goathead, I also write editorials, poetry,  and fiction.  

I wrote my first book, tentatively titled The Black Moon of Lilith,  for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) 2020. It's an urban fantasy/supernatural horror story about a librarian's assistant who stumbles upon 
the Grim Reaper's cloak. If published,  this will be the first book of my Land of Entrapment series.

I look forward to networking with fellow readers and writers with similar interests.

Nathaniel Patterson

I am looking for a writing group that tackles a little of everything. I have a novel manuscript that I am editing and revising, and I am working on a new novel currently. I have written some short stories and essays, but I am looking to gain some publishing credits and awards, so that I can be more marketable to a literary agent. In college, I was awarded Denise Giardina Fiction Contest Prize for my short story “Get Along.”
