Apocalypse Confidential is a web magazine of edgy extrapolations, fringe fascinations, occult obsessions, risky ruminations, and aberrant associations. It is a literary journal obsessed with the underworld, both demonological and criminological.

We have no word limit, but keep in mind that we’re an online magazine, not a publisher (yet) so save your novella for next time. Most published fiction submissions fall within the 4k-6k word count. For poetry, please limit submissions to no more than 5 pages.

I am looking for a small group of supportive writers with whom to share and discuss work in progress. I am also open to sharing writing prompts and reading texts together. In recent years I have  participated in a couple of writing groups, both in person and virtual-- and I am open to either format.  I write poetry and have had some of my poems published in small journals. I  am happy to join with writers of any genres.

Louise Wareham Leonard

Mature encouraging well-read writer looking for a friendly online group to share poems or short texts.  Some favorite poets: Charlie Smith, Louise Gluck, Henri Cole. I was a poetry reader for Tin House for a long time. My recent published poem is here:   https://agradecidassenas.com/mother-at-e....

Fiction and literature favorites are European, English and American. (see my essay The German crowd about growing up (partly) at an international School.) I love the NYRB Classics.  

Story is important, but for me the writing is the MOST important.

What else?-- A few highlights: I am the 

Winner of the James Jones First Novel Award for my first novel Since You Ask, (Akashic Books, NY) 

Subject of an essay in the LARB for my third novel 52 Men (Red Hen Press, Pasadena)

Recently wrote a contemporary fairytale, Fiery World, and put it up as an Amazon Kindle. 

Was first published way back in the day in Poetry.

I write poetry and fiction. I have had over a dozen poems published, but I haven't yet managed to publish my first novel "People Who Love You."  I take workshops and sometimes they are inspiring.  What I am looking for in a group is some continuity and accountability. I belonged to a small poetry group for years but it disbanded with the pandemic since then I haven't been part of a group since. Now, I think I am looking for a novel writing group but I am open to a poetry group as well.

Hi, I'm looking for an organized, critique group working with poetry.  Some experimental.  But, not foresaking some kind of thread. A supportive group, not a tear-apart group.  Interested in the craft of poetry.  

I'm old.  71.  I live with many animals out in the sage brush at the base of a mountain.  My horse is 17 hands tall.  Born in my barn.  She's 7 now.  I have an MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard.  Most recently have been taking classes with Xavier Cavasos.  I have published in many small press journals off and on since the 1980s.  I used to do Slams in Seattle.  Now, it's all I can do to keep my geriatric goat alive.

These days I am writing modified prose poems with stanzas for breathing room to unpack the energy.  I'm looking at sentence structure to increase the energy.  Right now I live in the snow.  In summer wild fires smoke us out.  I want to write pieces without excessive lineation.  Pieces where the writing carries its own.
