M Francis

I've translated extensively from classical Chinese poetry, the results of which a few dozens have been published in specialized and general literary journals.  I self-published a dual language book of 50 poems from the Tang major poet, Du Mu.  Have been keenly interested in formal verse both in translating and in writing original poetry.  Am trying to expand my range both in form and content, moving ever further from academic treatments.  Lately have experimented with original personal free verse and English haiku; also speculative fiction, genre poetry.  I value workshops for their multiple perspectives and challenges.

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 :)

Sarah Hamidi

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.

Novel Slices is dedicated solely to novel excerpts. These excerpts should feel like they come from novels that want to be read—they may pop readers into the action and leave them hanging at the end. They do not have to feel 'complete' or read like a short story! Each issue includes 5 winning excerpts from two annual contests (March to April, and September to October).

Each issue has a guest judge. Look at their novel(s) for an idea of styles they may be most interested in, but remember that we also push our judges to look at all genres and styles!

SORTES is a collection of stories, poems, songs, and illustrations. “We have neither theme nor scene. We publish both the sufficiently strange and insufficiently boring: swart stories, hoity poetry, magical surrealism, beatnik travelogues, pulp, antibiography, experimental sentimentalism, and sideways photography. We also host readings, old time radio performances, and other beloved gimmicks.”

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.
