I teach a class, the laws of international trade and shipping, which routinely requires me to review assumptions and the stories we tell ourselves about the world and our roles in it.  Retirement  is liberating. Time for new stories and to wade into new tides 

When I was more active on social media, I maintained a wordpress site where I occasionally posted poetry and other bits.   Romancing the Crone with Words – Poetry and other Writings by Ella Dodson (wordpress.com)

I would like to find a small group of writers who are curious and have a sense of humor about the writing process and life.  Ideally we could meet  biweekly or monthly online.

I'm working on a collection of essays. In the past, my writing was geared toward academic audiences in social science journals. I also published a social science book with a university press. In the next few years, I'm looking to develop my creative nonfiction skills. I would like to intertwine memoir with history and social science. I'm looking to workshop my writing and for accountability. If possible, I'd also like to meet in person on occasion.

Ohm Journal is dedicated to publishing works of progressive literature, criticism, poetry, and art. The editors don’t make distinctions between these because they believe in the democratization of the written word. 

We do not wish to publish works that merely interpret the world around us, rather works that seek to change it for the better.  We desire to break down the modern information bubbles that alienate us from one another. We seek passionate expressions of lived experience and sincere attempts to grapple with substantive issues. If you, like us, yearn to create a just and equitable society—rejecting the current trajectory toward fascism and neoliberalism, or simply wish to engage with our articles, then send your stuff to submissions@ohmjournal.com and feel free to reach out to us on social media!

Spoonie Magazine publishes art, articles, audio, poetry, prose, video, and hybrid works by disabled, chronically ill, and/or neurodiverse individuals (or their loved ones) on related subject matters weekly in their online magazine. All work is considered regardless of the perspective with which it approaches these topics. Their goal is to promote the voices of, and provide a space for, disabled artists and authors in publishing and the arts.

We champion representation and honesty in the creative discussion of disability. Our mission is to share authentic experiences— as happy, sad, inspirational, or frustrating as they may be. These individuals face unique challenges, so we have created an equally unique place specifically for them.

Note that submissions sent from Feb—April and Aug—Oct are simultaneously considered for publication in our print literary journal, Spoonie Journal.

The magazine is bilingual and publishes poetry and prose in English and French, as well as translations. Founded by poet Murielle Mobengo, Revue {R} is based in New York, London, and Paris. We host a yearly art contest, Axis Mundi, curated by a poet, an artist, and a mathematician. Awarded artist Maria Linares Freire is co-editor-in-chief for the arts. 

We recommend that you take the time to read Revue {R}évolution before submitting. Also, pay attention to our guidelines and yearly open call themes.

A retired engineer just coming to grips with the concept of enjoying writing after half a century of hating it with a passion. Primary school teachers have a hell of a lot to answer for. My writing experience outside academic and professional environments is limited to a few years and involvement in a local writing group.

People tell me I can write, but I am struggling to comprehend an ability that has never before been applied to me. Though sometimes I find myself in a timeless place where rearranging and juggling words, sentences and paragraphs to provide the reader a very specific understanding. I think I enjoy the process, but can a wombat truly enjoy flying?

I think I know an aweful lot and will gladly tell people so, but few have the desire or will to be enlightened. I can visualise a book that tells the world what I think they should know about humanity and how humanity thinks or tries and fails. A book never before needed as much as it is today. Perhaps a pipe dream but I keeps me off the streets.

I have been writing for many years. I have an MFA in creative writing and have published a couple of essays in anthologies. My writing is focused on family history as well as personal experiences of living as a Black woman in the US. I am looking for a writing group to help establish accountability for my writing. For several years I was a part of a nonfiction writing group that met monthly which was helpful. Since we disbanded a few years ago I have struggled to keep my momentum consistent, as it is easy to lose focus while working a full-time job. I hope that I can also be a source of encouragement for other writers.
