Pocket Samovar is an international literary magazine dedicated to underrepresented post-Soviet writing, art & diaspora. We originated in 2019 as a group of Jack Kerouac School students influenced—but not determined—by our Soviet cultural memory. As a multilingual print and online publication, we aspire to serve as a virtual tearoom, contributing to the dialogue between North American and Eurasian literary community and expanding the possibilities of writing.

The Story-telling Diosa

For years I've been on auto-pilot maneuvering through life fulfilling obligations that I entered under a false understanding of who I was. Knowing my true passion was writing but being on the hamster wheel of life wouldn't allow for any real tangible emotions or language to emerge. I've done spoken word, written short stories and overall am I rather decent story-teller.  As an activist driven by a passion for social justice and as a local eleced official, I began to get my feet wet by writing my own speeches and delivering them at various events large and small across my home state of Massachusetts.  

When COVID hit me on March 6th and exacerbated my auto immune condition, I nearly lost my life.  Now with a community behind me raising money to seek the medical care I need and on a path to recovery, I begin writing again.  Forcing myself to go inward and really dig deep into all the unsustainable ways in which we manage to survive, the many ways women are objectified and taught to heal the world before we tend to self; as a proud activist and falling under labels that are typically marginalized, (convicted felon, BIPOC. disabled, women, fat, Puerto Rican, poor) I emerge from who I was to unapologetically story-tell experiences that will hopefully allow for folks to hear a perspective they aren't familiar with.  Now that I struggle with maintaining breath and energy due to illness, I have no choice but to channel through the keys at my fingertips.  I believe in intersection and inter-connectedness and I always choose Love.

blueguitar / George Kramer

I have come late to a passion for writing poetry.  I have an interest in poetry going back decades, but as I arrive in late middle age I have become much more serious about it.  I have a couple dozen poems that have been published over the past 3 years, and I have manuscripts for a chapbook and a book book that I am trying to get published. 

I'm looking for a diverse group of poets with whom to brainstorm, seek critical feedback on work in progess, and with whom I can provide and receive moral support.  It would be nice if they were local (DC area), but zoom buddies are fine too.  Only requirements are reciprocal kindness, patience, honesty and a desire to improve and help others improve as poets.

Gail Hovey

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."
