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.

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.

Please remove your name from your manuscript.

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.
