Tanya Harris

I am putting the finishing touches on my novel and plan on sending it out to agents in the fall. It is a 100,000 word book about the destructive consequences for Black and brown people whose paths intersect with a predominately white family. It follows a Los Angeles-based family through a seminal year in their lives, exploring the corrosive impact of racism on the entire family, especially their Black son.

I am an emerging writer who has yet to be punished. I have been unsuccessfully submitting excerpts to literary journals  but I am focused on completing the second revision of the book. I am sharing a few novel chapters with a friend every few weeks and he should be finished with his review in time to meet my fall deadline. 

I would like to find a supportive community of other newbies who are preparing to attempt to find an agent and/or completing a second (or third or fourth) book draft. I have never written a query letter before so any guidance is welcome!

The Story-telling Diosa

For years I've been on auto-pilot maneuvering through life fulfilling obligations that I entered under a false understanding of who I was. Knowing my true passion was writing but being on the hamster wheel of life wouldn't allow for any real tangible emotions or language to emerge. I've done spoken word, written short stories and overall am I rather decent story-teller.  As an activist driven by a passion for social justice and as a local eleced official, I began to get my feet wet by writing my own speeches and delivering them at various events large and small across my home state of Massachusetts.  

When COVID hit me on March 6th and exacerbated my auto immune condition, I nearly lost my life.  Now with a community behind me raising money to seek the medical care I need and on a path to recovery, I begin writing again.  Forcing myself to go inward and really dig deep into all the unsustainable ways in which we manage to survive, the many ways women are objectified and taught to heal the world before we tend to self; as a proud activist and falling under labels that are typically marginalized, (convicted felon, BIPOC. disabled, women, fat, Puerto Rican, poor) I emerge from who I was to unapologetically story-tell experiences that will hopefully allow for folks to hear a perspective they aren't familiar with.  Now that I struggle with maintaining breath and energy due to illness, I have no choice but to channel through the keys at my fingertips.  I believe in intersection and inter-connectedness and I always choose Love.

homecoming poet

I write to share my experiences and connect to others. I am an experimental writer that enjoys any and all forms, including none, and am highly collaborative. I am looking for a community to connect with to improve my writing and refine my manuscript for my first poetry book, Homecoming. I have been published in Sinister Wisdom, a multicultural lesbian lit mag for which I volunteer writing book reviews and editing the website among other things. I am a student of Social Work at Rutgers in my third semester and plan to work with youth.
