Papers Publishing believes in putting the writing first. A group of creatives jumpstarted Papers as a way for writers and readers alike to go back to where it all started—the page. Writers come from all backgrounds, and the editors are aiming to bring more visibility to emerging writers whose work can sometimes be overlooked due to their lack of traditional experience.
Be yourself! We love individuality, and though we don't ask for cover letters, we love getting to know you and why you created this masterpiece! We represent bold, outrageous, raw, and completely beautiful writing—and we're working to challenge the literary norm.
Recovering journalist in hot pursuit of no-nonsense, but good-humored, writers to take on the role of assassins to help me kill my darlings. (I'll kill yours if you'll kill mine!)
Two manuscripts, handful of short stories. No idea what to do next.
Cheerleaders also needed, but with an edge and a little bit of darkness behind the pom-poms. Assassin cheerleaders--better than cheerleader assassins, from a criminal justice perspective.
Hi, my name is Celeste and I am a poet. My experience writing poetry goes back to elementary school when I was scribbling very bad attempts at rhyme and lyricism (usually about things like smiles or ice cream), but it has grown and developed significantly since then. Currently, three of my poems have been published in the online literary journal Applause, and I am always on the lookout for more interesting/popular publications that will consider my work. I am very passionate about my poetry, and about poetry in general, and I'd love to find a group of like-minded individuals who feel similarly. I write a lot about dreams, nature, spirituality, sexuality, mythology, religion, and love.
I started out reading poetry when I was six years old, mostly to learn how to speak English. I enjoyed the conciseness and clarity even then. In high school, I became interested in journalism. I wrote for the local paper. In college, I needed to pay bills, so became a freelance advertising copywriter. Fast forward to retirement from writer, youth minister, behavior analyst, and teacher, I now return to my poetry roots. I published a few poems in journals and anthologies. I am looking for a group to support my passion for writing through honest feedback and encouragement.
I have always written in my life in some capacity, either at school, university, or in personal journals. I have recently completed writing a novel that I am in the process of submitting to literary agents. My novel is about family, culture, and community. I am particularly drawn to stories that explore different cultures and communities because I grew up in multiple countries outside of the United States. I would like to find a writing group where I can workshop short stories and creative fiction pieces I am working on. I got a lot out of the creative writing workshops I participated in when I was in college and would like to find something similar. It has been many years since I have had a creative outlet and access to creative people (not since college) so I am looking for a group that will help me feel more anchored to the creative process.

Irish American Writers & Artists
Irish American Writers & Artists was started in 2008 by Malachy McCourt with in-person salons twice a month in New York City. I was a new playwright in NYC when I found them in 2014 and it really helped launch my playwrighting career and find community. We are an all-inclusive group and are now back to in-person salons once a month in the city and another virtual salon where we get writers and artists from all around the world!
ARTWIFE invites unsolicited submissions of literary art, visual art, and video art through its Submittable platform. It does not accept poetry submissions.
ARTWIFE accepts submissions of original fiction (short stories) and nonfiction (essays) up to 4000 words. Flash is also welcome.
All submitted work must be previously unpublished.
ARTWIFE gravitates toward literary art that pays clear attention to craft and construction. We're extremely unlikely to publish genre. We like complex works that resist tidiness or moralizing. We're equally open to plot-driven and character-driven work.
