Jack Tarrou

Hello! My name's Jack, I'm a 22 year old writer living in Washington, near Seattle. I've written on and off through college, taking several creative writing classes to hone my skills. The most intensive piece I've written was a feature length film script, but I've also written a television script and series bible, as well as short stories and poems.

I often find maintain a habit of writing difficult, thought since I graduate in a few weeks, I'm hoping that I'll have the time and motivation to write more, and I hope that through finding a group of likeminded artists will help me stay motivated in my writing, as well as provide me an outlet for constructive criticism of my work.

DL Jones

I'm a recent college graduate working in the PR industry in Austin, Texas. I've been writing for a little over ten years, but I have little experience in submitting my stories to literary journals and contests. Recently I've been contemplating applying to grad school and getting my MFA in Creative Writing, but I want to fine tune my manuscript and ensure that I have something solid to submit when/if I apply. I'd like feedback on my writing just so I know what I'm doing right and what I'm doing wrong. Since most MFA programs are highly selective, I really want to make sure that I submit my best work. 

I graduated from college with a degree in Public Relations. At the time, I picked PR because I had read it was writing heavy. In the back of my mind, I envisioned myself working in PR while also working on my novels once I finish school, and once I started my writing career, I could leave my PR job. Now I'm working a PR job, and I see that I don't have time to write. I feel lucky if I can get an hour of writing in, and I spend that hour trying not to fall asleep from exhaustion. This is a part of the reason why I want to go back to school, so I can dedicate myself full-time to writing to see if this is a career path I want to pursue.

I haven't been able to rid myself of the desire to become a writer, though sometimes I wish I could. Life would be much easier if I was passionate and excited about my current career trajectory. 

As for what I write, I tend to focus on fiction. The types of fiction I write varies, but lately I've been focusing on horror, mystery, etc. Some of my favorite authors (and the ones I look to for inspiration) are Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, Shirley Jackson and Flannery O'Connor.

I have written poetry with very limited publication, but want to explore the genre more.  I scarcely attended a poetry group at Beyond Baroque in Venice, and although the poets there were great the distance proved challenging for me to attend.

I've had several short stories published, and am working on a novel.  I attend a writers workshop on Tuesday nights (virtual now) at Writers @ Work with Terry Wolverton and that is great. 

I'm always up for meeting more writers.

SJ Luke

Hello!  I've been writing since I was a young girl. I love words! English class was always my favorite in school.  I had great teachers who taught me the basics of writing.  I'm an avid reader and my writing was inspired by many stories I read as a child and teen. I'm also into science fiction, comedy, anime, and fashion. I love watching programs in those genres. My stories and poems are informed by my experiences and the world around me. I'd love to meet other writers to discuss craft, publishing opportunities, and review each other's work.

Jenna's profile

I have finished a fiction manuscript that I would like to have published. The manuscript is a little over 130,000 words, so advice on what to cut would be particularly appreciated. I think the genre is YA, but I'm not sure if some of the themes are a little too dark or mature for YA. Beta readers with clear notions about genre would be great.
