Eythana Miller

I've always loved to write, and have recently been exploring more genres than ever before, mostly due to encouraging professors. Poetry was an early love, and last year I challenged myself to write one each day. I'm currently in college, and wanting to gain more experience with writing, as it's something I'll probably go into in some form career-wise. Memoirs are interesting to me, as well as creative nonfiction and journalistic pieces. I've never had a real writing group, and would love the chance to connect with people who share my interests. I'm an insatiable reader, and am excited to see what others have been writing as well!

Ron Erredmek

As an intellectual sort who is still learning what poetry can do, I am interested in honing my skills into something unique by interacting with others who simply feel they have something to say in a form that expresses beyond what words alone cannot.

Perfection and professionalism are not my thing -- by striving for excellence through human-to-human contact and the art of communication, I hope to engage with an entity that is greater than the sum of its parts.

I believe that language is the one thing that can embody a man-made power greater than ourselves.  And I sense -- nay, I know -- that there are others out there that feel the same.

Let us see what can be wrought.

blueguitar / George Kramer

I have come late to a passion for writing poetry.  I have an interest in poetry going back decades, but as I arrive in late middle age I have become much more serious about it.  I have a couple dozen poems that have been published over the past 3 years, and I have manuscripts for a chapbook and a book book that I am trying to get published. 

I'm looking for a diverse group of poets with whom to brainstorm, seek critical feedback on work in progess, and with whom I can provide and receive moral support.  It would be nice if they were local (DC area), but zoom buddies are fine too.  Only requirements are reciprocal kindness, patience, honesty and a desire to improve and help others improve as poets.

We at Variety Pack try to live up to our namesake! A bedrock of diverse voices, expressing a variety of arts & letters. We are open to both genre and literary. We have an aesthetic, but it's a broad atlas rather than a narrow stream!

Please read our guidelines carefully! Read previous issues, but also feel free to send us something that we haven't published yet. Note* Reading periods will be subject to change. As of next month, we will be reading for our fifth issue!

Bill Waters

Hi! My name is Bill Waters, and I love to write! Over the years, I've carved out a small but vibrant space for myself mainly in the areas of Japanese-style micropoetry, photo and video poetry, ekphrastic poetry, found verse, and compressed prose. My work has appeared in print and online in numerous established, up-and-coming, and aspiring niche publications, as well as on signs as part of public poetry installations.

Are there any writers out there who like to write collaboratively? It's fun! There are two-person and three-person rengay (Japanese-style micropoetry that employs alternating stanzas); multiperson "exquisite corpse" poems, where writers are given only the last word of the preceding stanza as a prompt; two-person tapestry poems, in which two poems -- one written by each participant -- are shuffled together into one poem, and other possibilities. 

Why write collaboratively? It's interactive; it's friendly; it stirs up the creative juices; and it can lead to some remarkably good (and publishable!) results. I'm game... Are you?  :- )
