Hello, I'm an activist, poet, and writer. I have published a number of research, policy, and op-ed pieces. I have written and published several essays. And I have written and published several poems. I am revising a number of poems now for submission and possible chapbook while continuing to draft and develop new poems. I am also working on several braided, hermit crab, and other essays. Finally, I am working on a nonfiction book which will include narrative nonfiction as well as more journalistic pieces (I think). So I am looking for a group (or groups) to workshop pieces, provide critiques, and discussion about any and all the genres I'm working in (and more).
As a multidisciplinary writer, I am interested in a range of genre and styles. My ideal peer group is supportive, well-read and a strong ecelectic mix of writers with developed craft, fair-minded, with a sense of committment to the group as well as one's own individual investment.
We aim to publish art and words for the future by artists and writers who believe they're carrying, on their hunched-over-computer shoulders, a pretty heavy yet very pretty burden—to offer us all a way into ourselves so that we may come back out with the wisdom required for positive change as individuals, and as a society. All accepted work will appear both online and in print.
We aren’t certain there is “good” and “bad” art—only honest and dishonest art… but we’ll get back to you on that. Suffice it to say, we really don’t want to be gatekeepers. We want to be a blank canvas.
Press Pause will never have a social media account. It will never promote itself (or get into online debates) on social media, so that the art that is shared can be appreciated within the embrace of a lovely now-uncommon silence.
Submitting to Press Pause will always be free.
The Twin Bill is a quarterly online literary baseball publication founded in 2020 at the start of the pandemic. We celebrate the rich history of the game while also recognizing its vibrant present through essays, fiction, poetry, interviews, and visual art. We welcome writers of all levels and experiences.
We want to hear your story about baseball. It generally helps if you focus on a single game or moment as opposed to listing multiple ones.
Fecund highlights exceptional works of new abundance. The magazine is a medium through which writers and visual artists are exquisitely showcased and paid for their work. Fecund publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, theory, criticism, fashion writing, and visual art via interdisciplinary media (text, audio, video, new media).
Although we don’t conform to one aesthetic, we respond to work that challenges traditional forms or embraces liminality.
