I'm a recent graduate based in Paris working on a historical fiction novel. Because of COVID, I have become very isolated and my writing routine monotonous. I am looking to find inspiration from other writers and also a supportive space where I can share my work and receive feedback. I look forwards to meeting you :)
Pocket Samovar is an international literary magazine dedicated to underrepresented post-Soviet writing, art & diaspora. We originated in 2019 as a group of Jack Kerouac School students influenced—but not determined—by our Soviet cultural memory. As a multilingual print and online publication, we aspire to serve as a virtual tearoom, contributing to the dialogue between North American and Eurasian literary community and expanding the possibilities of writing.

Hello. My name is Sarah Hamidi and I'm a student journalist, writer, and actress. I aspire to be a writer among many other things. I want to share my stories with the world and seek to enlighten myself with knowledge about society, people, and the world.
I hope to share my writing with the world in the hopes that they feel enlightened or that they've learned something from reading my writing and my works.
I have written before on my own as I enjoy journalism a lot. But, I enjoy the right kind of journalism, one that informs the public with accurate information and provides insight. I've been on hiatus with my Medium page, but I hope to resume writing on it soon and fully intend to do so.
I'm looking for a group that will continue to encourage me and critique my writing while honing my writing skills. I need a lot of help and encouragement for writing a book and I'm hoping to get support and help every step of the way in that endeavor.
I look forward to working with you all and let's create some awesome writing.

the museum of americana is an online literary review dedicated to fiction, poetry, nonfiction, photography, music, and artwork that revives or repurposes the old, the dying, the forgotten, or the almost entirely unknown aspects of Americana. It is published purely out of a fascination with the big, weird, wildly contradictory collage that is our nation’s cultural history. Issues appear three times a year, in the winter, summer, and fall.
We seek work that engages or repurposes America's complex cultural history—original & unpublished fiction, nonfiction, poetry, book/chapbook reviews, interviews, music, photography, & art. Give us fiction that dramatizes old folk songs or steals their characters—give us love poetry with language cribbed from The Federalist Papers. Recent features: fiction on the 2008 financial crisis via Bartleby the Scrivener; essay on the family legacy of tomato-growing, and a personal essay on Annie Ross and "Twisted."
