Joyce Reynolds-Ward

I am a hybrid author with traditionally published short stories (including a Writers of the Future SemiFinalist placement) and self-published novels (one of which was a Semifinalist in the 2018 Self-Published Fantasy Blog-off). My work often deals with the personal impact of either technology or magic on the lives and relationships of powerful women. My first series, The Netwalk Sequence, (cyberpunk science fiction with alien invasion) had a strong secondary theme of the relationships between mothers and daughters struggling for control of a technology and corporate power. My second series, Goddess's Honor, had the themes of sibling struggles between deities affecting the lives of people, as well as reluctant leaders ascending to power and what they do with it. My third and fourth series, The Martiniere Legacy and The Children of Philip Martiniere, both deal with a large and powerful family struggling to not only deal with the legacy of four hundred years of history, but the impact of a sociopathic family head who almost destroys not just the Family but the family-held corporation, the Martiniere Group.

I'm looking more for occasional beta swaps and social contacts rather than a formal writing group. I tend to be a prolific and fast writer, and that doesn't go well with critique groups.

The Nonconformist is a literary magazine dedicated to publishing fiction, poetry, experimental fiction and poetry, book reviews, literary criticism, and various culture-related articles. We believe in reconfiguring the world using pens, typewriters, and word processors. At The Nonconformist, we aim to create, encourage, and support a community of both emerging and established writers who will find their long-sought literary home here. We nominate for the Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net.

I believe in the fantastical.

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).

I'm a professional editor with experience in several fields (trade publishing; international affairs; IT). My first novel is out on sub through my agent (as of April 2021) so I'm focused now on research for and drafts of a second novel.

Conference/workshop experience: NY State Writers Institute; Grub Street; FAWC; and Words & Music (in NOLA). Two grad degrees in international studies (but no MFA).

My fiction is based largely on my 1st career, as a Soviet specialist for the US government, but TBH I'm not a fan of most contemporary thrillers. (Exceptions: Joseph Kanon's Defectors and Robert Harris's The Ghost. Other favorites: Rumaan Alam's Leave the World Behind and Rosalie Knecht's Who Is Vera Kelley? )

I'm open to critique groups--happy to read other people's work--but have nothing yet to share myself, so would want any group to include goal-setting and accountability check-ins. 

Flexible on how often to meet but bi-monthly or monthly would work best for me.

Eleanora H. DeWiltshire

Hello, 

I am an engineer who is finally getting into writing. I am almost done with the first draft of my first novel, a steampunk mystery set in an alternative Victorian era in what (was) Virginia. I have many other ideas for sequels, other books, and a collection of short stories. 

I think that next (while I let my novel sit before editing) I will write one of the short stories and try to submit it to a contest. 

I love the research portion, and history especially. Right now while writing I'm also trying to soak up as much as I can learn about the craft, while networking and setting up my brand as an author. 

It would be lovely to work with a group on this site. 

Sincerely, 

Eleanora

Jack Tarrou

Hello! My name's Jack, I'm a 22 year old writer living in Washington, near Seattle. I've written on and off through college, taking several creative writing classes to hone my skills. The most intensive piece I've written was a feature length film script, but I've also written a television script and series bible, as well as short stories and poems.

I often find maintain a habit of writing difficult, thought since I graduate in a few weeks, I'm hoping that I'll have the time and motivation to write more, and I hope that through finding a group of likeminded artists will help me stay motivated in my writing, as well as provide me an outlet for constructive criticism of my work.
