Red Wheelbarrow (since 2000), formerly Bottomfish, believes that everything that crosses the transom merits deep attention. We believe that beauty and meaning will inhabit wildly varied and unexpected tones and styles. Our journal is well produced, eclectic, tough minded, open, lyrical, passionate-socio-politically engaged-and we value quiet & craft, the gaze into nature, the deft image, the startling leap, meditative consciousness—and great use of language. We honor and crave all of those qualities-in art-and in one another.

Send us your good stuff. E-mail submissions to weisnerken@fhda.edu. Then if we publish your work, join us at WORKS/ San Jose in fall to read at our publication celebration. Also, submit to annual Red Wheelbarrow Poetry Prize, redwheelbarrow.submittable.com/submit. (2021 Contest Judge: Mark Doty). July 31st deadline.

Mary Harwell Sayler

Hi. I've been a freelance and assignment writer for Christian, educational, and indie publishers for many years so have placed a few dozen books and hundreds of short manuscripts, but my primary focus now is poetry - especially poems that bring insight, musicality, fresh imagery, interesting perspectives, or something new. In judging a recent poetry competition, however, I was dismayed by the numerous rants offering no solutions. Poetry has power! It can be a powerful, beautiful instrument of change simply by moving people and helping them see a view or delight they had not yet noticed.

Mary Margaret Freeman

After a long hiatus, I've returned to writing new poems and revising old ones. I'm starting to send out as well. 

I hold an MA in creative writing (University of Dallas), and years back did doctoral work in literature and theology. 

The topics I address in my work vary: everything from religious belief (faith and doubt) to nature, historical events, and the act of creating in language. Whether I'm creating a short lyric or a longer narrative, I'm always looking for the meaning behind the image or the meaning of the narrative (while avoiding didacticism). I'm also sensitive to the musicality of language and have a native sense of meter; I occasionally employ rhyme but in general, I don't write in set forms, though I'm interested in doing more of that. 

What am I looking for? Heavy-duty critique and encouragement. I can offer the same to others.

I am a retired high school English teacher who is now a full time writer. I have a chapbook of poetry published by Finishing Line Press, and am currently working on a memoir about my late husband's long illness and eventual death from cancer. I am also writing essays. I want a writer's group that is serious about getting published. I would like my work critiqued, and I enjoy reading and critiquing other people's work. I am super flexible. Trying to get my creative nonfiction published is my primary goal right now.
