Bill Waters

Hi! My name is Bill Waters, and I love to write! Over the years, I've carved out a small but vibrant space for myself mainly in the areas of Japanese-style micropoetry, photo and video poetry, ekphrastic poetry, found verse, and compressed prose. My work has appeared in print and online in established, up-and-coming, and aspiring niche publications, as well as on signs as part of public poetry installations.

Let's write together and have some fun!  :- D

Haley Mak.

Hello! I am a fairly young writer looking to meet and converse with fellow writers who have experience in the the industry and the craft itself. I have been working on my first novel for about two years now and am very excited to dive deeper and deeper into this story and therefore, into myself. Any advice, tips, criticisms, and comments are encouraged and greatly appreciated. 

My favorite genres are Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Romance, and a couple of my favorite authors include Sarah J. Maas, Holly Black, James Patterson, and Leigh Bardugo. These writers have been a huge inspiration to me when it comes to worldbuilding and character development, and if you are someone who enjoys writing in genres like these, I would love to read your work too! 

I am so excited and fortunate to be able to join the writing community so early in life, and I can't wait to continue my journey alongside all you other amazing writers.

New and emerging writers. We like stories that meander and explore the world around us. Stories that tend to blur the line between fiction and reality.

We also accept art submissions!

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.
