I have one published work, a poetry collection entitled growth which I self-published through Amazon when I was seventeen and to-date has sold 57 copies. I also delivered a spoken-word TEDx poem for TEDxNCState, which is published on both the TED website and the official TEDx Talks Youtube channel! My writing comfort zone typically involves poetry, mental health, and trauma recovery, as well as nature and environmental themes. My social media presence is @jtommyj and @jtommyjcreates on Instagram and @tommybbyboy on Twitter!

I live poetry and currently write with several different groups/people. Am looking to expand my circle of poets and thus to expand my craft through inspiration with other poets and having other poets' eyes on my work. Hearing their responses, as I give mine to theirs.

I like to do generative work with writers, and then possibly other sessions for revision and critique.

I can lead fun exercises and am very collaborative, love being led as well.

I have a BA in creative writing from 1984, and since then have been learning independently. It's time to work more in tandem with other passionate poets.

I'm looking for people who are expanding the world of their own writing through risk, adventure, and dedication.

We publish fiction, poetry, music, visual media, and otherwise in English, Català, Castellano, and Deutsch. We frequently publish work—or play—by writers and artists from outside the United States and actively seek more submissions by neurodivergent, BIPOC, women+, and LGBTQ+ writers, as well as their allies. Pieces concerned with ecological themes or inclusive of nonhuman species are welcome.

We strongly encourage those submitting to our journal to sample a few pieces before they do so, as what we publish is pointed and eclectic. It is worth reviewing the Submissions page on the website before reading the detailed submission guidelines found on Submittable.

NDSU Press publishes regional scholarship and literary contributions. Our region includes the Red River Valley, the state of North Dakota, the Great Plains of the United States and the Prairies of Canada, and comparable regions of other continents. Works published by the press address regional life directly. Such works contribute to scholarly knowledge of region (that is, discovery of new knowledge) or to public consciousness of region (that is, dissemination of information or interpretation of regional experience).

Please send your work as an MSWord document, uploaded to our Submittable portal. Your submission should consist of two documents: your cover letter and your mansucript. Please remove your name from your manuscript. Your cover letter should briefly describe your work, contain a paragraph about what inspired you to write this work, and describe who you see as your potential audience. We conduct in-house reviews; manuscripts passing this first stage are sent out for double-blind peer review.

I am a multigenre writer who writes poetry and prose. I have an MFA in fiction; however, I have a strong almost double major emphasis in poetry. I am interested in narrative poetry as a form to enrich fiction. I am currently working on a novel set in the 1930s South, primarily Little Rock, AR with an adventure to Scottsboro, AL. I have listed my interests as historical and regional to create a writing group also writing within this era. As a Black writer, my focus is on Black community in the novel. I am particularly interested in the ways that racism as a background impacts the foreground of the emotional lives and personal development of the characters alongside the family bonds formed. I have a complete draft of my novel and am currently outlining and working more deeply on characterization. I’m looking for a a characterization and outlining group to join the journey!

My writing has included many genres: poetry, playwriting, spiritual reflection, essay. I am at a stage where I want to go deeper, have more focus, and publish with regularity. I desire to focus my writing on spirituality in contemporary times -with a focus on ecumenism. I seek fellowship and accountability with flike-minded writers who wish to produce  creative work with consistency and a practice of submitting for publication. My training has included the University of Iowa Summer Writing Workshop (Poetry) and steady membership in a writing circle here in Wisconsin. I will continue with that group while at the same time expanding my writing community.
