My name is McKenzie. I have recently graduated from the University of West Florida with a master's in creative writing. I mainly read and write romance, especially dark, paranormal, and contemporary romance. I find that I am most in my element when writing about character relationships and interactions. I also really enjoy writing horror and poetry. I have published poems in a couple different places and am excited to continue submitting my work. I am excited to connect with writers!
Hey! My name is Jak. Experience? I've been writing poetry all my life, primarily in free verse, but I'm looking to bring a more formal, structured existence to my words now. I've written and self-published two volumes of poetry, and would love to move into traditional publishing. What am I looking for? People who understand the role poetry has in my life, who are happy to exchange work for constructive criticism, and a group that is openminded.
I started writing fiction at the age of 14, and underwent a major development in my writing style and process in 2020-21. I am a discovery writer who writes literary fiction novels about character relations and trauma. I started writing poetry in 2021 and have been writing free verse since then.
The Dillydoun Review is an online literary magazine that publishes monthly issues of prose and poetry. All varieties are welcome for consideration including but not limited to: short story, flash fiction, poetry, prose poetry, essay, creative nonfiction, and flash nonfiction. We also host the annual Dillydoun Flash Fiction Prize and the Dillydoun Short Story Prize.
The Dillydoun Review is open to all writers. Although we do offer paid options to fast-track a submission or to receive detailed feedback, we will always offer a free submission option and are particularly interested in reading work from traditionally marginalized voices.
I am a student looking to expand beyond the classroom and interact with writers across genres. I have workshop experience and have served in several positions in my campus' publications. Outside of school, I have been published in several literary journals and magazines.
I'm a young writer interested in nature, mental health, spirituality, love, feminity, and social connection. I wrote my first manuscript as part of my senior keystone project in college, and I'm currently submitting that collection for publication. As I graduate college, I am hoping to continue learning from others and having an accountability group for both encouragement and critique. I have experience in workshop environments, am published in literary journals, and hope to have my collection published soon.
I am a literary fiction writer. My short stories have appeared in Fifth Wednesday Journal, Room, The Antigonish Review, Another Chicago Magazine, and JEF (Journal of Experimental Fiction). My work centers on disability, sexual violence, agency, and feminism. My opinion journalism has appeared in The Huffington Post, Women's Media Center, RANTT Media, and Garnet News.
Hello Fellow Writers!
I'm an emerging writer/poet searching for a writing group that will hold me accountable for writing more often, provide a critique of my writing, bounce ideas around, and provide support. I've been writing poetry since my early teenage years. My personal essay was published and part of a collection of personal stories called Blooming Through Adversity curated by Tiffany Manbodh. I have performed my poetry at various events in South Florida. My goal is to publish a poetry collection and be published in a literary magazine.
