Vince S

Over 30 years ago, I wrote as a hobby on and off.  I became more consistent with writing as a hobby in 2005 when I started my blog and have continued to write posts.  Although I do not write everyday, I have increased my volume of writing and write several times a week. 

In 1989, I was a reporter for a student newspaper, The Racquet.  I gave political analysis as well as writing a headline article about Wisconsin possibly passing a minimum wage in the spring of 1989.  In the last decade, I also wrote for Law Blog Writers, LLC.  I have tutored  and helped high school and college students improve their writing for various assignments and projects.  
I wrote two fictional stories.  One of those stories is 14,600 words in length; the other fictional story written is 5,600 words.  I continue to blog and am writing another fictional story.  
I joined Poets & Writers to improve my writing first and foremost.  I want to be able to publish and earn some money (doesn't be a lot) through writing.  I understand from briefly viewing entries to hire writers that I need to write a longer story than I have ever written before.

I'm feeling for routes through a sprawling landscape of documentary fiction and other disciplines such as memoir, history, three-dimensional objects on exhibit, and performance. The broad topics might include diaspora, genocide, mothers and daughters, secrets and lies, and monuments, memories, and memorials.

Collateral is an online literary journal run by people who are directly and indirectly impacted by violent conflict and military service. We showcase high-quality poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and art that explores those spaces beyond the combat zone, where the “collateral” effects reverberate.

We want poetry, CNF, fiction and visual art that pushes the boundaries of exploring the impact of war from a range of perspectives. Our mission is to publish work that puts a spotlight on all those spaces beyond the combat zone.

Plates is an internationally minded experimental journal with care for art, design, writing, and community.

Plates welcomes proposals for essays, interviews, reviews, maps, love letters, recipes, literary works, and page-based installations. Work that exists exclusively in the digital realm is also warmly welcomed for online-only publication.

Criticality is compulsory; positivity is welcomed if you feel it; objectivity is (a figment) optional.
