I have been writing since I was a teenager, over 4 decades now. As a kid, my dream was to write books. I read everything I could get my hands on and the library was my favorite place. I cannot exist without writing; I kind of dissolve, thin out, puddle off, if I don't get words on a page each day. I journal pretty intensely every morning (about 5 a.m.). I also have my writing projects, and write a lot of poetry. Yet it is one of my biggest secrets, this wanting to be a writer. I have a full-time day job with a long commute, and I have a family - a busy life. At times, my writing time feels like stealing away from "responsibility". But if I don't catch the words circling around my mind, in my body, in my space, it's like I am not able to breathe. I've been chicken about trying to publish, and may have an overly cruel nagging  voice in my head about what I "produce". However, I am working on a poetry collection that I hope to soon submit for a chapbook, or a contest. I also have a novel in my head, only 2 chapters so far written. I joined a small online writing group a year ago and enjoy doing the prompts, have gotten some amazing critiques and much encouragement. I also have discovered that I love creative, supportive critiquing. I think I am also fairly good at editing; I edit scientific manuscripts on my job. I won spelling bees as a kid. What am I looking for in a writing group? I just sense that I would like to move on out of my little cubby hole, really try my writing muscles a little more, interact with other writers, and learn to take myself a little more seriously through that interaction. But also - to have fun at writing with and for others.

My educational background: I was an English major (bachelor) and translate German/English, too (fluent in German, live as an expat there, but my mother tongue is American English).

RachRona

I'm a writer with ten years of experience. For my day job, I work with businesses to help them write and edit a variety of content from thought leadership pieces, to blog posts, to interactives. I also work with a trade publisher doing manuscript reviews---which I love! 

Even though I spend my days writing, I want to carve out more time for my personal writing projects. I'm looking for a writing group that meets regularly and is interested in sharing work and offering feedback and encouragement. I'd also love to talk about experiences trying to get work published.

I have been a closeted writer for over 20 years.  Life always got in the way.  I love historical fiction, bringing the past alive.  Imaging their daily lives and struggles.  I am currently working on a novel.  I am always looking for tips on research, editing, just plain writing ideas and help.

Tight work which will leave a scar on a reader.

Your work does not need to be desert-themed; but the general open feeling of a desert should be present in the work. We also publish books by authors whose work appears in the magazine, and do not yet have a publisher.

Having returned to creative writing later in my life, I have participated in numerous workshops (in-person and online) over the years. I write both fiction and poetry (and some non-fiction). My own particular interests generally lie in literary fiction with a speculative element, and in poetry that attempts to be more expansive in context (as opposed to more singular or insular). I would be interested in online groups that specialize in either fiction or poetry; ideally, I would participate in one of each. I already participate in a local writers' group here in Virginia, and I am interested in working with other writers from farther afield as well. My work has recently appeared in Vol. 1 Brooklyn and in the print anthology, Saints & Sinners: New Fiction from the Festival 2020 (Bold Strokes Books).
