Kritiksha Sharma

I have been a digital non-fiction writer for as long as I can remember now, and I have recently made the switch into fiction. As a relatively young fiction writer with borderline unrealistic aspirations which my ambition would never allow me to consider unrealistic (crazy delusional thing, ambition), I'm looking to meet other writers in different milestones of their writer journeys and learn as much as I can from their stories and the paths they've treaded on. Apart from being new to the world of fiction I'm also new to this crazy concrete jungle of a city and I would love to socialise with writers from all walks of life in any way, shape or form this pandemic allows us to.

My writing experience has most recently returned to poetry, after spending some time writing fiction.  I spent 2020 writing Haiku, and attended the Seabeck Haiku weekend, virtually.  This year, I am returning to a broader range of poetry.  Early on, I published in a Midwest Poetry Journal. I have workshop experience for both poetry and fiction, and participated in a bi-weekly writer's group with published authors for several years.  The lyric essay has caught my eye as something I would like to play with.  I will be attending the Sierra Poetry Festival, April 2021.

I'd like to be part of an on-line (but maybe live in the future) group that offers support and encouragement, meeting weekly or bi-weekly.  Thank you!

Patricia "the Grey" Anderson

Greetings and Saluations! 

I write short pieces, seldom over 1000 words, both memoir and fiction. I'm experimenting with "skewed reality" in my fiction--not quite fantasy/sci-fi/speculative, rather a comtemporary world with a twist of magic or the supernatural. 

I would like to find a person or two who would be willing to read and critique my work in exchange for the same. Email/zoom/phone or a combination are all fine. Turnaround time about a week?

I have published a few pieces years ago but only recently started submitting again.

I am female, in my 60's and live in Pacific Time zone. Lived near Chicago for 30 years. Grew up on East Coast. I work out, am a dog walking volunteer at the Oregon Humane Society, and am experimenting with visual arts, mostly involving glue.

Charles Springer

Hello everyone....I'm Charley Springer and in 2019, had my first collections of poems entitled JUICE published by Regal House Publishing. You can visit my website at https://www.charlesspringer.com and get a taste of what's inside JUICE. It is totally non-alcoholic but as you read some of its poems, you may have doubts! Cheers

These past few years I have written and published mostly prose poems. This form works for me ninety percent of the time. They reflect how the poem is born and I so much enjoy the process.

HOW I WRITE      

It's rare I read without being led to write, which some might say prevents me from simply enjoying another writer's words. The writers, most often poets, particularly prose poets whose work I cling to over and over will see me stop in the middle of a passage to grab a pencil and piece of paper to get my thoughts down as quickly as possible for they can be fleeting and I forget easily anymore. Friends say it's age! These thoughts are usually the beginning of something of my own, something big, reflective of a real experience or as I soon discover, something I've probably made up. Sometimes it's hard to tell! With this all happening, I've put down the book and may not pick it up again for days. This book and others I keep by my bed, I usually only read at night and some nights, they read me and themselves to sleep. When I get up in the morning and over a cup of something hot, I type what I have scribbled in the dark into Word, the Office program, not the sacred text and this Word file is what I'll read and edit and revise for days. Half the time I'd say it finishes into something good. What doesn't, get tossed.

 

HOW I FEEL ABOUT NOT WRITING

For years I belonged to a local writer's group, mostly poets, a few short story writers, a memoirist or two and all were academics except me. I learned so much from them by simply listening and I came to love them all. We were, for the most part, eager and very productive, bringing something we've written to nearly every Thursday night meeting to read aloud and have critiqued. I recall one spring I hadn't written anything for weeks and the group got a little concerned. I finally told them, hey, it's okay, it'll happen when it happens. And it did late that summer and I couldn't stop. Writing was all I did. My point is write when you want, write when you can and when you can't, go mow the lawn or wash the car. Particularly the lawns and cars of those in the writing group who are too busy writing.

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.

I hope to find a few individuals who want to help me shape my portfolio as I apply to MFA programs in poetry. It is difficult to be my own critic and need more input beyond my household members.
