Essence B. Scott

I am a Black Disabled writer who recently moved to Goldsboro, NC. I am not picky about what I write and am interested in learning how to write new things/forms. Am also interested in revision, critique, and accountability. Also some fun! (because like the saying goes... "all work and no play...") I have participated in NaNoWriMo and NaPoMo. I enjoy writing poetry, fiction, and CNF. I have projects that I wish I could finish (as in publish) and would love a virtual group to write with that may transition to in-person as restrictions around COVID-19 begin to lift in Wayne County.

Stuart H Nager

I believe in the fantastical.

It started with comic books (12¢/comic). I was taken to places, ideas, heroics, and even though I didn't know it then, I gained knowledge of sequential storytelling. I engulfed Tom Swift, Jr. and other juvenile adventure and science fiction books. I saw just about every Horror/Science Fiction movie that played at the Earl Theater (around the corner) and Saturday mornings/early afternoons B movies on TV. My mother didn't think there was anything "off" by letting me watch 1963's The Haunting or Hitchcock's Psycho. My distrust of birds came from watching a movie about them. Can't put my finger on the title right now. But, birds...ugh. 

I wrote, and I wrote some more over the years. Became the Associate Editor for the DW Clinton newspaper, followed by writing for the school literary and poetry magazines. I wrote the copy for my senior Yearbook in college. A few plays, mini-comics, and other forays beyond what I had to write in school. 

Then, adulting happened.

In 2011, I created two blogs: Bornstoryteller and Tale Spinning. The first was filled with essays about education, the good and the not-so-good, and a few other pertinent subjects. The latter is my Creative Fiction blog, flash friction-filled, poetry-laden, serialized tales, and whatever interested me along the way. My range tore through Fantasy, Horror, Science/Speculative Fiction, Humor, Thrillers, and Crime. I dabbled in various styles, having fun with Pulp Fiction, Hard-Boiled Noir, Victorian England, and as many sub-genres of the genres that interested me. 

I have been published, online, in three anthologies, two novellas, assorted Flash Fiction and Poetry groups, essays, and had the privilege of creating/hosting a Shared World Blog Challenge. An editor in England has an eco-system/non Dystopian novella in his hands that was requested. The 42 Word Anthology has two of my pieces accepted and awaiting publication. Submissions are out flying around. Finally, I lead workshops in Creative Writing as well as three online writing groups (Critique; Generative; and Poetry).

A tad more than a "little something." My good.

SORTES publishes whatever makes us shiver, plotz, turn on, and/or freak out. We've published what might be called magical realism, dirty surrealism, fantastical biography, experimental poetry, tender balladeering, elusive allusive elliptical poetry, and sweet old grainy photography.

SORTES considers unsolicited submissions of poetry, prose, illustration, music, videos, and anything else you think may fit our format and feel—and very often material that doesn't. Feel free to poke at us: we’d love to find a way to publish dance, sculpture, puzzles, and other unliterary modalities.
