New Creative Writing Series
. . .
. . .
Welcome to The Rookery, a quarterly creative writing series published by the Creative Pinellas’ Arts Coast Journal that welcomes fledgling new voices and seasoned writers alike. I am beyond excited to be The Rookery’s editor and curator.
We welcome writers to submit work for consideration via our submission form here.
The Rookery accepts poetry, flash fiction, fiction, creative nonfiction, comics, visual, and hybrid work. Writers are also invited to share videos, visual, and experimental work. We love hybridity and experimentation. For printed work that’s been published elsewhere, please let me know the details of publication so we can credit the original publisher.
Send in work you’re excited to share with others. We are an inclusive creative writing series that is dedicated to holding space on the page for voices that are often marginalized in publishing including people of color (BIPOC); trans, queer, non-binary, LGBTQ+ people; people with disabilities; and people of all ages.
We’re a small operation, but we pride ourselves in being able to offer writers payment for publication.
To further introduce myself, I’ll share a soundscape of my poem “The Romantics” from my forthcoming poetry collection Danzirly / Dawn’s Early. The soundscape was created for Nikke Pike’s installation Totem which was recently on tour at the Dunedin Fine Arts Center. It was originally published by Cosmonauts Avenue.
. . .
All are welcome to this creative nest.
I look forward to reading your work.
The Rookery Editor & Curator
