Jo-Ann Mort

I returned to writing poetry after a 22-year hiatus.
As a 1978 graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, I was published early as a poet in Pequod, Stand, Social Text, Jewish Quarterly and elsewhere before I stopped writing poetry and returned to it , just four years ago. I wrote (and continue to write) journalism/books/analysis in the meantime, published in Dissent [where i am a long time editorial board member], The Nation, The American Prospect, Foreign Policy, Haaretz, Democracy journal, reported for Chicago Tribune, New York Review Daily, elsewhere and co-authored a book about the kibbutzim's transformation in Israel. I was also engaged as a political activist and was a national trade union activist. Not quite as intense as the poet George Oppen's views about politics and poetry, I did nonetheless go through a similar period where I felt that poetry could not change the world. Now, I know that poetry can redeem our broken world and how necessary it is.

Since returning to poetry, my work has been published in Plumepoetry ,  Atlanta Review  The Women's Review of Books,   Upstreet,  Stand UK, and elsewhere.

I have a manuscript that I've been circulating.

I'm especially interested in narrative poetry and poetry that places the person in the middle of a political moment. In non-pandemic times, I usually spend at least 6 weeks a year in Israel and am deeply engaged in politics and culture in Israel and Palestine.
I live in Brooklyn, NY.

Ramona Grigg

I'm a long time newspaper columnist, freelance feature writer, essayist, and blogger. My political blog, Ramona's Voices, ran for 12 years, from the day of Barack Obama's first inauguration to the inauguration day of Joe Biden. I've been published in places like Crooks and Liars, Huffington Post, Eclectablog, Liberaland, Dagblog, and featured in other like-minded websites.

I make my home mainly on Medium now, writing about everything from political activism to creative nonfiction to humor. I run my own Medium publication, Indelible Ink, as well as appearing on many of their best publications. I'm on Twitter almost daily, using my 240-character limit to the limit.

I have three newsletters--one for my publication, one on Substack, and one on Twitter/Revue. But I'm guessing you've never heard of me. That's because I'm the worst PR person in the world for my own writing. Some of us go into writing because speaking is hard for us. We're not good at adlibbing. We love the idea of rewriting because it give us the chance to go back and say what we should have said that first time. I'd like to talk about that. And much, much more.

I think the best part of our writing life comes from our engagement with our communities. We write best when we write alone, in the quiet, but there are times when we need to know there is a group out there who will understand. Writing is hard. Our need to communicate with other writers grows as our job grows. I look forward to meeting up here at P&W.

Creative Nonfiction draws heavily from unsolicited submissions. Our editors believe that providing a platform for emerging writers and helping them find readers is an essential role of literary magazines, and it’s been our privilege to work with many fine writers early in their careers. A typical issue of CNF contains at least one essay by a previously unpublished writer. We’re open to all types of creative nonfiction, from immersion reportage to personal essay to memoir.

Please do send work that blends style with substance, and reaches beyond the personal to tell us something new about the world. We're drawn to stories that balance a strong narrative (i.e. something happens) with a teaching or reflective element (i.e. the something that happens matters for some reason). Please do include your complete contact information and keep us informed of the status of simultaneous submissions. Please don't send poetry.

I am an author of a book called My First Red Sox Game which is a children's illustrated one day memoir written with baseball hip hop haiku which I am the creator of. I'm also producing a video and would like to do 30 more MLB books and videos like this. I am also working on an educational patented process.

In addition I am writing about A First Amendment Political Malicious Prosecution where I was falsely accused falsely imprisoned raped by a prison guard & sexually abused in prison tortured and this is because I am transgender after I was marked by a district attorney and another government official for retaliation for complaining about a judge who would not let me see my transgender son because I am transgender. I did not commit any crimes so the DA has the police file false police reports and the DA never had any evidence of a crime, and judges didn’t care and refused to obey the law too and therefore I was mobbed and lynched by Law Enforcement after I asked to see my son and complained about a judge who would not let me see my transgender son.

Looking for Agents and Publishers to help fund & write the story of political corruption in law enforcement and the fact that there is no separation of powers as is the core elements of the U S Constitution. I am currently preparing a professional book proposal.

Hey,

I'm a poet, short story writer, journalist, and educator originally from Mumbai, India, currently based in Providence, Rhode Island. 

After an undergraduate degree in advertising and journalism, I moved to New York City to pursue my MFA in Fiction and have since been based here. I mainly write short fiction and poetry, and take the occasional stab at creative nonfiction though I hesitate to call myself  an essayist because the form comes to me sporadically and with great trepidation. I am, however, very quietly working on a novel — saying this out loud ensures I can be accountable to myself.
