Enjoying Litopia Writers’ Colony

I am really enjoying this online creative writing community: https://colony.litopia.com/index.php, although I seem to be one of the few from the US there.  That’s okay, for it is refreshing to meet other writers from all over the world.

I am humbled to read about the commitment to writing so many make compared to the insane amount of “living to work” I did for decades.  I wonder if living in a country with national health service allows for more artists to flourish?

Anyone else a member there?


Spillwords.com, a Mini-Review

spill  **Update: I am having a poem, “Stopped,”published here July 19th.

Spillwords.com is a publisher of fiction, poetry, and original artwork, as well as a re-publisher of “literary greats” that are now in the public domain.  This publisher’s goal is to create a:

…home for all that live and breathe words, spilled or inspired, through literature of every genre, from writers and poets of every walk of life.

The team of editors will work, they state,  to ensure “…work is presented responsibly.”

The writers I saw published there come from all over the globe, and there is a special part of the site dedicated to publishing in Spanish.  The other writers, from all over the world, are published in English.

I am pretty sure the publisher is actually in Poland; I checked and the mail address in there, in Poland.

It’s great to find new (to me!) places to submit work, and to read poetry and fiction from all over.

Thanks for reading!
