Seeking a community of writers for mutual accountability, inspiration, encouragement, honing our work and getting it out to readers.

I've published essays in journals and magazines, have been working for several years on a semi-memoir/semi-narrative nonfiction book. I  have several creative nonfiction and nonfiction projects in the works, on subject matter involving nature, the arts/culture/craftsmanship, and/or the interweavings among these subject areas.

I'm a freelance artist (murals, commissioned work, calligraphy, illustration), and have  taught studio art and art appreciation The website I've posted in this profile is my art ist website (I don't [yet] have an author website or author social media page).  The processes of craftsmanship in these media find their way into my writing.

I'm looking for a small group, fewer than ten, to work with as I begin new writing after a number of years of working on a memoir. I've managed and written for journals focused on politics /social justice/ ethics, co-edited a history of the grass-roots movement in the US that was in solidarity with the anti-colonial and anti-apartheid movements in Africa, and most recently published a memoir about the life-long impact of childhood sexual abuse and how it influenced the work I've done as a writer/activist.

I have just begun working on what I expect to be essays related to extinction/climate crisis and queer theory and theology. I also find that I am writing poetry, prompted by the birth of a grandchild in Belgium, poems that I hope to publish as at least a chap book.

I need a group that is able to critique various forms of work. I need people who are serious, committed writers producing excellent work on a regular basis. I say this because of previous experience in groups. I have benefited enormously from the critiques I've received in writers groups. I have also had difficult experiences in groups and know how valuable a good group is. I organized an in- person group where I live. We had difficulty finding enough writers and disbanded after a year. This experience is what brings me to try a P&W group.

Finally, for the tenor of the group I seek, I take a line from Poet Laureate Joy Harjo's EAGLE POEM: "that we just take the utmost care / and kindness in all things."

We at Variety Pack try to live up to our namesake! A bedrock of diverse voices, expressing a variety of arts & letters. We are open to both genre and literary. We have an aesthetic, but it's a broad atlas rather than a narrow stream!

Please read our guidelines carefully! Read previous issues, but also feel free to send us something that we haven't published yet. Note* Reading periods will be subject to change. As of next month, we will be reading for our fifth issue!

I've been a poet forever, with a chapbook published by Dancing Girl Press and 2 full length manuscripts making the rounds. I have been branching out lately into visual poetry (haven't shown anyone yet!) and into fiction -- thus far I've stuck with short speculative/horror fiction. I'd love to write personal and/or lyric essays but I just never seem to finish them for some reason! 

I'm not sure what I'm looking for in a writing group! I'd like to see what this platform has to offer and then I'll edit :)

Moxy is a literary magazine that focuses on creative nonfiction - work with a nonfiction subject matter, written with the imaginative verve and stylistic skill of the best fiction. We publish criticism, essays, travel writing, memoir, and pieces that blur the boundaries in between. 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). We also accept pitches for as yet unwritten pieces. Please ensure you read the full submissions guidelines on our website before sending in your work.

Robert Croll

I'm a Spanish–English literary translator with a particular affinity for creative nonfiction from Latin America; I've worked on a wide range of texts including books by Ricardo Piglia and Hebe Uhart. I've also begun writing my own fiction and essays, as well as more experimental hybrid texts involving photography, and am hoping to find a community of writers with similar aspirations to trade ideas and encouragement.

P.S. I love editing and am happy to provide extensive feedback and line edits on other writers' work.
