Journal The Write Place At the Write Time

Our publication was founded in 2008 upon the premise of creating a community-oriented atmosphere of art and literature that speaks deeply to the human experience. It is our personal touch, on everything from the feedback we give to our aesthetic to the relationships we cultivate with our contributors, that distinguishes our approach. We feature fiction, poetry, non-fiction, resources, essays, book reviews, contests, fine artwork and interviews that include best-selling authors such as Janet Fitch, Alice Hoffman, Arthur Golden, Frances Mayes, Sarah Ban Breathnach and Eric Weiner.
