I am a 20 year old traveler and writer hoping to improve with the eventual goal of publication. Currently living abroad so I am only available to meet online. I have experience writing music, poetry, essays, and short stories but am primarily focusing on poetry and music right now. I mostly write semi-autobiographical poetry that focuses on my experience with mental illness as well as philosophy, belief, and humanity. Most my writing is meant to be intense and slightly uncomfortable; it is meant to highlight authentic human experience, especially my experiences with pain, sex, and identity. I have always been drawn to visceral imagery; as a feminine, nonbinary, and biracial writer, I would love to meet other writers who are exploring the concepts of violence and rage within the marginalized experience. Some major themes in my work are feminism, travel, identity, isolation, desire, substance abuse, restlessness, and self-destruction. I am very interested in gore imagery and amoral honesty about lived experience. I'm hoping to find other writers exploring similar themes who are open to sharing their work and talking about literature. I'd love to get more feedback on my poetry from like-minded people and have a chance to read personal writing of any genre.
I am also looking to get advice from pubished poets/fiction writers. While the current publication goal is for poetry, my long-term goal is to finish more short fiction stories and as well as (eventually) complete a novel. I have several projects in the works but definitely would appreciate external opinions as I primarily have experience with poetry and songwriting. Currently working mainly with themes of dystopia, science fiction, fantasy, horror, and coming-of-age; generally with overarching philosophical and moral ideas.
I am also looking for opportunities to experiment with more consistent, structured writing such as prompts and workshops. I have mostly been a very emotional writer, which has been beneficial in my poetry but can cause creative blocks with completing fictional stories. Open to giving and recieving suggestions, really just looking for a community of writers who want to explore the world through their work!
