Tony Tian-Ren Lin

I was born in Taiwan. Moved to Argentina when I was 6 and spent my formative years in Buenos Aires. I now live in New York City. My writing reflects the multiple subjectivities I hold. I write mostly creative non-fiction now. I used to be a research professor at the University of Virginia where I studied immigration, religion, race and ethnicity. I'm the author of Prosperity Gospel Latinos and Their American Dream (University of North Carolina Press, 2020). It's an ethnography of Latin American immigrants who converted to this form of Christianity as a way to become Americans. My first work of fiction are stories inspired by the people I met through my research. They are a series of stories of immigrants who met their challenges with their faith to varying results.

Assisi’s mission is, first and foremost, to publish works of literature and art that are thoughtful, engaging, and well written/composed. We look for work that examines the human condition, that helps the reader view things from a slightly different angle, and that provokes an emotional response not for mere shock value but rather as a way to open up new ways of thinking about or relating to the world. 

Please make sure that you follow the submission guidelines, especially the requirement for submissions to be blind.

I'm a happy old dude living in Middle Georgia. I've dabbled in writing for years, but am now trying to be more intentional. Decades ago I had a few poems published in obscure (and probably now defunct) literary journals. I wrote a textbook on Project Management for Pearson Education. I'm in the Master of Arts in Technical and Professional Writing program at Middle Georgia State University (December 2021 graduation). I'd like to write a few fiction pieces worthy of publishing because I'm weakest in fiction and I'd like the challenge. I'm trying to read more and write more and I'm looking forward to finding a writing group home.

I write a lot of everything, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, journalism, etc.  Therefore, I don't want to limit the writing of anyone who joins this group.  I also publish a lot of everything, and have more than 220 poems and stories published in selective literary magazines, plus two books of poetry.  I write realistic fiction and a pretty good amount of horror and science fiction.  Again, I don't want to limit anyone from joining this group.  In fact, a variety of perspectives would be great.

I've published in academic collections, anthologies, lit journals, and mass market magazines. There are two or three longer manuscripts in various stages of completion–nonfiction about: Love, Death & Friendships in 1970's Times Square; Drinky, Drunky Sober Girl (which is self-explanatory); and a massive number of essays and notes on living with & caring for my elderly mother who has dementia and five ancient and/or special needs cats, tentatively under the heading Grey Gardens 11372.

Since the pandemic, it's hard to find time when I'm not pulled elsewhere for work, Mom, sleep. The hardest part is I'm only free between 8am and 4pm. Obligation to a group will help; I miss the community of writers I had during grad school and when I was teaching.

If no one is there to see you write, are you making any noise?
In Quarantine, no one can hear you write. And so on.

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 write fiction and nonfiction. I'm also a full-time working mother of two and the founder and publicity director of a volunteer-driven literary arts org. I have years of workshop experience but at this point of life, I am looking for more generative writing prompts so I can make most of the limited personal writing time I get.
