I've self-published four books (penname Will Martin) and had a few short stories and even a poem accepted for publication.
Hola! I'm a senior writer and poet and my aim is to spread peace and happiness through my writings. I've self-published some of my poems on a few poetry websites.
Looking forward to some inspiration, feedback, and tips in a writing group :)
Pensive publishes work that deepens the inward life; expresses a range of religious/spiritual/humanist experiences and perspectives; envisions a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world; advances dialogue across difference; and challenges structural oppression in all its forms.
I am a multigenre writer who writes poetry and prose. I have an MFA in fiction; however, I have a strong almost double major emphasis in poetry. I am interested in narrative poetry as a form to enrich fiction. I am currently working on a novel set in the 1930s South, primarily Little Rock, AR with an adventure to Scottsboro, AL. I have listed my interests as historical and regional to create a writing group also writing within this era. As a Black writer, my focus is on Black community in the novel. I am particularly interested in the ways that racism as a background impacts the foreground of the emotional lives and personal development of the characters alongside the family bonds formed. I have a complete draft of my novel and am currently outlining and working more deeply on characterization. I’m looking for a a characterization and outlining group to join the journey!
My writing has included many genres: poetry, playwriting, spiritual reflection, essay. I am at a stage where I want to go deeper, have more focus, and publish with regularity. I desire to focus my writing on spirituality in contemporary times -with a focus on ecumenism. I seek fellowship and accountability with flike-minded writers who wish to produce creative work with consistency and a practice of submitting for publication. My training has included the University of Iowa Summer Writing Workshop (Poetry) and steady membership in a writing circle here in Wisconsin. I will continue with that group while at the same time expanding my writing community.

I have been interested in Poetry all my life. I want to be better at using my words to motivate hearts and minds into belief and action.
I've always loved to write, and have recently been exploring more genres than ever before, mostly due to encouraging professors. Poetry was an early love, and last year I challenged myself to write one each day. I'm currently in college, and wanting to gain more experience with writing, as it's something I'll probably go into in some form career-wise. Memoirs are interesting to me, as well as creative nonfiction and journalistic pieces. I've never had a real writing group, and would love the chance to connect with people who share my interests. I'm an insatiable reader, and am excited to see what others have been writing as well!
I write to share my experiences and connect to others. I am an experimental writer that enjoys any and all forms, including none, and am highly collaborative. I am looking for a community to connect with to improve my writing and refine my manuscript for my first poetry book, Homecoming. I have been published in Sinister Wisdom, a multicultural lesbian lit mag for which I volunteer writing book reviews and editing the website among other things. I am a student of Social Work at Rutgers in my third semester and plan to work with youth.
