Poetry teaches me to pay attention: to nature, to human life, and to my own feelings. Poetry helps me find the extraordinary in the mundane. I mostly write haiku, tanka, and related short form poems, and have published about 100 works in literary journals. These days I am hoping to return to writing more free verse. I'm looking to connect with other poets who also center their work on nature and paying attention to ordinary things, as in the work of Mary Oliver, Wendell Berry, and David Whyte.
Hey! I'm TJ and I love writing novels and short stories. I'm still finding out what genre I like writing in best but I find that I tend to write literary pieces with elements of mystery and romance.
Currently I'm looking for a writing group to join. Writing alone can be...well lonely! Looking for a writing community that is encouraging, accountability partners, and critiques.
Hello Fellow Writers!
I'm an emerging writer/poet searching for a writing group that will hold me accountable for writing more often, provide a critique of my writing, bounce ideas around, and provide support. I've been writing poetry since my early teenage years. My personal essay was published and part of a collection of personal stories called Blooming Through Adversity curated by Tiffany Manbodh. I have performed my poetry at various events in South Florida. My goal is to publish a poetry collection and be published in a literary magazine.
Hello, writers! I'm a marketing writer by profession, but find it does not feed my creative juices. So, in my spare time I write poetry (I've had a few poems published online and in anthologies), memoir/short stories (I've been published in two of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series), and freelance articles (I started my career in journalism).
I'd love to find a writing group focused on social justice, as much of my poetry centers on this theme. I'm just looking for a space to write and share, a space to find inspiration.
I am a retired literature; I have self-published one book of prayers and meditations. I hope to publish a second book soon of prayers, both prose and poetry.
I've been keeping journals since I was 11 years old...now 42. My writing has been a savior and a guide and I'm rebirthing post divorce and want to reignite my creative side. I revel in my own writing and the wisdom and guidance I meditatively wrote. Looking to connect with like minded travelers - no destination in mind, just braving a new space and fellow poets and creatives ❤️
I'm a nonfiction writer published in The NY Times, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, among others. I have a hard time focusing and have many pieces started but not finished. I've also been working on a memoir for many years that I'd like to finish. The themes I tend to write on are parenting, loss, faith, and technology.
I'd love to find a group to keep me accountable to just showing up to write often.
