We’re just a little lit journal looking to celebrate modern womanhood, stretchmarks, period blood, and finding the joy in raising your voice by subverting the patriarchy one piece of art at a time. We're looking for poetry, prose, audio, video, and art that does just that.

So, here's how you get into Serpentine: be familiar with our past content, avoid clichés, and for the love of all that is good and green in this world, please read the submission guidelines.

I am a writer and storyteller on stage. My short fiction has appeared in Signal House Edition, New Reader Magazine, Orange Quarterly and the anthology Writer Shed Stories Vol. 2. My nonfiction has appeared in Quail Bell Magazine, the INELDA Newsletter, and the Chicago Review of Books. I enjoy reading literary fiction and memoir and also write book reviews. I am interested in a writing/reading group to exchange work and offer constructive feedback. I am also interested in networking for the purpose of learning about publishers, editors and other literary industry professionals.

I'm looking for other poets who have reached a certain level in their craft! I've been teaching creative writing and writing poetry for over 25 years. My last chapbook was published by Finishing Line Press about 6 years ago and I am just starting to think about publishing again. My mom just passed away and my daughter is in college, so for the first time in a long time I can focus on my writing. I'm currently working on my poetry manuscript and submitting individual poems to online/print journals as I revise. I'm looking for a diverse, multi-generational group of poets who want to give feedback on poems, talk about the writing process,  share publishing tips and encourage each other when we feel down.

Joyce Reynolds-Ward

I am a hybrid author with traditionally published short stories (including a Writers of the Future SemiFinalist placement) and self-published novels (one of which was a Semifinalist in the 2018 Self-Published Fantasy Blog-off). My work often deals with the personal impact of either technology or magic on the lives and relationships of powerful women. My first series, The Netwalk Sequence, (cyberpunk science fiction with alien invasion) had a strong secondary theme of the relationships between mothers and daughters struggling for control of a technology and corporate power. My second series, Goddess's Honor, had the themes of sibling struggles between deities affecting the lives of people, as well as reluctant leaders ascending to power and what they do with it. My third and fourth series, The Martiniere Legacy and The Children of Philip Martiniere, both deal with a large and powerful family struggling to not only deal with the legacy of four hundred years of history, but the impact of a sociopathic family head who almost destroys not just the Family but the family-held corporation, the Martiniere Group.

I'm looking more for occasional beta swaps and social contacts rather than a formal writing group. I tend to be a prolific and fast writer, and that doesn't go well with critique groups.

I'm a later-in-life emerging queer feminist writer of color. I've been blogging for several years, and have recently rediscovered my absolute love of exploring life and the world through words and language.

I'm mainly working in the realm of creative and narrative nonfiction, bordering on but not quite memoir.

I'm excited to join this community!
