Margaret R. Sáraco

I have been writing most of my life.

For years, I have participated in writing groups including critique groups and first draft/prompt groups.  Presently, I am in one prose group, a poetry group and one prompt group but am always looking to meet more writers, fine-tune my work prior to submitting it and work on perfecting my craft.

For the past few years, I have been writing mostly poetry, some short stories (which includes flash fiction), and have started a novel (in the revision process.) I have also been writing memoir, creative non-fiction pieces and wrote my first play this year.  

I would love to join a writing group with like-minded individuals who love the process of writing.

I'm a writer and editor with a bachelor's in fine arts degree in creative writing with a certificate in publishing from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. I currently work full-time as a technical writer for a technology company and also freelance write personal essays for various online publications. I am always looking for writing prompts to keep the creative juices flowing and spark new ideas, and I love to find writing communities where people can share what they're working on to keep one another inspired in their writing lives.

I am a Spoken Word Poet.  In addition to writing about the everyday rhythms of life, I like to pause for a cause and so I write about social issues like domestic violence, racism, xenophobia, human trafficking, etc. I also write about survivors of breast cancer and other challenges we face.  I write poems to motivate young people as well.  I use a lot of visuals, music, and even dance and art in my work when I can.  My books have the most vivid captivating pictures as I strive to create a complimentary message.  My poems are messages.  They are passionate, stirring, and creative.  As a free-style poet, sometimes I will use lines that rhyme, and sometimes they don't, but the cadence builds and the messages come through loud and clear.

The Apple Valley Review is an online literary journal. It is published twice annually, once in spring and once in fall. Each issue features a collection of poetry, short fiction, and essays. Our goal is to support and promote both emerging and established writers.

We prefer work that has both mainstream and literary appeal. Please do not send us strict genre fiction or erotica, work containing explicit language or violence, or work that is scholarly or critical, inspirational, or intended for children. Please note that these are purely editorial preferences. Work that is not a good fit here may be perfect for another market.

I'm a graduate of the Columbia University MFA program in Fiction and have published in a number of literary journals; my creative practice includes work as an exhibiting artist as well. I'm predominantly interested in short fiction, but I also write some creative nonfiction. I currently teach writing at a university in southwestern Ontario. I am looking for a regular workshop that values diverse voices and takes the writing seriously.

My creative writing career took a serious turn about three years ago when I took a much needed sabatical from teaching public education. I began writing everyday for the fun of it, and then slowly that evolved into a discipline. I began writing for an encouragement website; articles on healing, grief, community, etc. I founded both a Writer's Club for the local library where I work, as well as a Teen Writer's Club. I took part in a couple of creative writing workshops with other authors and have always learned so much from them! I have finished writing one novel and am in the throes of editing. I am also working on several different short stories in hopes of submitting them to contests or literary magazines for publication. Because I lead two different groups, I am looking for a writing group to be a part of collective of artists who workshop. I am a creative soul and use different mediums to express myself, however writing is my first love language. I also thrive in artistic community, and I yearn to learn from other writers. J.R.R. Tolkien is one of my favorite authors and the Inklings (a tight-knit group of writer's who met regularly to discuss ideas, plot routes, character developments, etc.-this group included C.S. Lewis by the way)  is a permanent goal for a writing community atmosphere. A group to bring work to the table and pick it apart for both content, structure and grammar.

Hello! Nice to "meet" you. I'm Caitlin. After getting a BA in English Literature and MA in Anglo-Irish Literature, I taught high school English and creative writing, worked in publishing as an editor, and now have a career as a content marketer – so I have pursued all the careers around writing without ever actually writing my own, authentic work. Along the way, I had a number of articles published in various print and online publications and blogs and am currently working on my first submissions for literary journals. I would describe my writing as mix of feminism, social activism, and spirituality. I'm hoping to join a workshop in order to find a writing community.

Hi! I've been writing professionally as a copywriter/blog writer/marketer for 10+ years. I've been writing personal prose and poetry for much longer but haven't shared much of it. I'm looking to put more focus on my creative writing and would love to find a group to connect with. 

I'm also a creative coach and dancer and love the combo of dance and writing for opening up creative channels.
