Tilted House Review is a biannual arts and literary journal made by hand in small batches in the small city of New Orleans. Through this outfit, we strive to cultivate a creative and communal unit from and for the city. And while the door is wide open for New Orleans’ minds, it remains open for the rest of the world’s. Everyone is encouraged to submit.
We like both experimental and traditional work. We like dark. Surprise turns, nuance, metaphor. We want poems we can smell. Fiction that sickens. Art that double-takes. We like hard-hitting endings. Polemics. Protest. Confession that isn’t like every other confession. Sonnets, American sonnets, sonnets all splintered. We like work that has its heart on its sleeve—and nothing on the nose. Crawl into our veins and sit there a while.
Hi! I am looking for a writing group that can help to push my creative boundaries. I am a visual artist, however, I have always loved writing and do it in my free time. I know I have a lot that I can still learn, so I am looking for a group where I will learn and grow, recieve constructive feedback and improve my writing skills. I recently had an article accepted into an art education publication that will be printed in the coming year, which I am very excited about. That will be my first publication.
I am a new author. I do not have experience within publishing neither have I been active within the writing community. I am looking for a group of objective people with similar interests to talk about writing and review over our each other's work. Right now, I am currently working on a multigenerational book about my family's history in Puerto Rico and the U.S. It has aspects of magical realism mixed in throughout the story.
Besides writing I enjoy reading adult fiction, fantasy, and romance books. I also have experience working with social media, so I can help with beginning to market your stories through your social media from start to finish.
Through my own writing experience, I write the way I talk, & the way I feel. I write with nothing but sheer depth & pure emotion. I want the reader to feel what I've written. I am looking for members who feel the same.

I have been interested in Poetry all my life. I want to be better at using my words to motivate hearts and minds into belief and action.
I'm looking for people who can relate to what I am writing about as I strongly believe I can help someone or even save a life or two. I've been writing for 18 years and I am 100% positive that I have touched the hearts of many people as I write about many different things. Almost everything I write comes from personal expierence and hardship. I write my emotions as if I'm asking someone to tell me who I am supposed to be, by helping others, I help myself.
For years I've been on auto-pilot maneuvering through life fulfilling obligations that I entered under a false understanding of who I was. Knowing my true passion was writing but being on the hamster wheel of life wouldn't allow for any real tangible emotions or language to emerge. I've done spoken word, written short stories and overall am I rather decent story-teller. As an activist driven by a passion for social justice and as a local eleced official, I began to get my feet wet by writing my own speeches and delivering them at various events large and small across my home state of Massachusetts.
When COVID hit me on March 6th and exacerbated my auto immune condition, I nearly lost my life. Now with a community behind me raising money to seek the medical care I need and on a path to recovery, I begin writing again. Forcing myself to go inward and really dig deep into all the unsustainable ways in which we manage to survive, the many ways women are objectified and taught to heal the world before we tend to self; as a proud activist and falling under labels that are typically marginalized, (convicted felon, BIPOC. disabled, women, fat, Puerto Rican, poor) I emerge from who I was to unapologetically story-tell experiences that will hopefully allow for folks to hear a perspective they aren't familiar with. Now that I struggle with maintaining breath and energy due to illness, I have no choice but to channel through the keys at my fingertips. I believe in intersection and inter-connectedness and I always choose Love.
