Sonia Myers

Hey, hello, Sonia here. What's up?! I'm a quarter educator, quarter environmentalist, quarter writer and reader, and in between all those cracks of weathering, you'll find love. On the pro side, in 2019 I completed the Science and Environment Teacher Fellowship and was recognized as a standout leader in environmental and sustainable education through the One Planet Schools Challenge. I am a National Geographic certified educator and a 2021 Grosvenor Teacher Fellow through National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions. I also write fiction novels for middle readers to promote environmental literacy and sustainability through storytelling. 

I am currently working on a middle grade fiction novel on plastics in the ocean, environmental justice, and getting loud.

I wrote a book about the mental hospital in my town and I interviewed people who had worked there. It became a community memoire. Mental diseases co-exist with the human condition and only now have they begun to be less stigmatized. The book is titled Under the Red Roof:  One Hundred Years at Northern State Hospital.

I'm looking for a reading group that would critique my writing.  I'm interested in other people's writing as they work through their rough drafts and try to polish their thoughts.  I'm looking for a group that is willing to consider other points of view respectfully.

I write to help me make sense of life.  Writing gives me a chance to pause and consider all the cultural and environmental influences at work.  In writing, I  discern how to respond instead of react.  If I can write something that is useful to others, helps them understand life in a broader and deeper way, then I want to participate in that exchange.

Not mentnioned above is interest in short and/or flash non-fiction as well.   Besides main focus in memoire/autobiog, I have smaller, short,  non-fiction pieces I would like to try to publish in journals.  I could use help with that.  But my main focus is memoire I'm working on.  

In 2010 ,I retired from instruction and educational administration in urban school district north east in the north east.  In 2017 I finished adjunct teaching  English and ESL writing in the same area.  I have well beyond MA in English Education  (and previously partial MA in Comparative lit) .  Since 2018 I live in central west Florida.  I am working on memoire since about 2014, but in a more structured way only in the last year.  I belong to a Canadian non-fiction zoom group and publishing organization that meets once monthly but it is not nearly enough.  I am picking up more local partners slowly, selectively as well, altho difficult with pandemic.

In addition to professional publications related to my work in literacy and writing education and supervision, I have published travel and feature articles in past.  I am avid traveler and multi lingual, having immigrated here from Europe in infancy.   

I am looking for a group that understands and is interested in memoire/autobiography.  Not  very large.  I seek mostly content and structural feedback at this point, but welcome any kind of tactful, open and insightful feedback.  I like to think I can provide the same.

We also feature original artwork and cartoons. 

Submissions should be between 1000 and 4000 words. We accept simultaneous submissions and favour UK-style punctuation (en-dashes not em-dashes, single not double quotation marks).

Hello! My name is Mehr and I recently graduated from Stanford University with a B.S. in Earth Systems and a B.A. with Honors in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. While I was admitted to an environmental communication master's program, I am taking a break and spending the year working on a novel draft (literary fiction). I was creatively blocked throughout college and did not care for my art and writing the way I wish I had, though I did write a collection of prose poems for which I was awarded honors by my department. I also completed a tutorial at Oxford University in feminist poetry and wrote the first draft of a novel for my capstone project last year which centers women of color and the environment. I love writing and am really in need of a creative community. I have both fiction and poetry workshop experience, so I know I can be helpful to others as well! While I write fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, I am currently seeking guidance and community around my novel. I am really enjoying the writing process and am slowly uncovering my voice once again and would love to find a safe environment where we can all share and grow our work together!
