Writing is an adventurous journey to the inner and outer Self, guided by the wilderness of imagination.

I am looking for a writing group where there is respect for each other's self expression and creativity.

I currently write poetry and short stories. I intend to write novels too.

  I am currently completing my MFA in creative writing, My interests are flash nonfiction, lyric essays, and writing about medicine.

A critique group that is supportive, willing to share, but not too serious, is a plus.

I would prefer a mixed genre group to expand my horizons.

Raia Bay Area

I'm a creative nonfiction writer based in the Bay Area. My work has been published in Tap Literary Magazine, Two Hawks Quarterly, Make/shift, and the Interdisciplinary Writer's Lab 2019 Anthology. My work contends with illness and healing, embodiment, psychology, anticapitalism, and structures of feeling. The writers I most admire include Lily Hoang, Melissa Febos, Katherine Standefer, Maggie Nelson, Claudia Rankine, Bhanu Kapil, and Lidia Yuknavitch. I would love to form a small writing group of like-minded writers to meet twice a month on my deck (or somewhere else comfortable and COVID-safe outdoors) to write and occasionally share our work. Please contact me if you're interested!

New authors make up 10% or less of each issue, but don't let that discourage you. We are interested in passionate new voices whose words and ideas hit us in the gut and leave us thinking about their work days after reading.

West Trade Review strives to put forth the best contemporary poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction (memoir/personal essays) and publishes a mix of established and up and coming writers.  We are committed to the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and want to hear from underrepresented voices of all types.

We like works that are edgy and affect us intellectually and emotionally.   We want poems , creative nonfiction (memoir/personal essays), and stories that make the reader think and feel, work that humbles us with its joy, humor, embarrassment, anger, hope, grief, or all of the above. We gravitate toward exquisitely crafted writing that has something important to teach us--something that readers really need to know, but might not have understood this was a need until the last word of the work.  Quality of writing, style, and characterization are important to us.

Please don't send us poems that rhyme, slam-style works, or dogmatically religious pieces.

Have a question abour our journal?  Don't hesitate to ask.

I've worked as a freelance editor/writer for 15 years. I was an English major (focusing on creative writing) at University of Maryland. I also tutor students of all ages in writing, reading, and English as a Second Language. I have written website copy for small businesses, newsletters and press releases for nonprofits, reviews and poetry for literary magazines, and resumes for individuals,   After receiving a seminary degree, I worked as a chaplain in retirement homes and hospices  for 10 years. I am writing a book about my chaplain experience,  covering spiritual lesson I learned from my patients and injustices within the health industry.  I am also writing a memoir focused on the realities a fat woman faces in American society. Finally, I enjoy writing form and non-form poetry.
