Welcome to The Write Place at the Write Time. Our online literary journal, founded in July of 2008, features fiction, poetry, non-fiction "Our Stories", Writers' Craft Box—resources, tools and essays by qualified members of the field, original fine artwork, and interviews with best-selling authors and diverse creative professionals. Our writers range from previously unpublished to having done work for The New Yorker, Newsweek, Business Week, HBO, The Wall Street Journal, Time magazine, Glimmer Train, The Southern Review, Georgetown Review, Worcester Review, Gettysburg Review, Simon & Schuster and Random House.
We work to provide unique, thought-provoking and engaging content to our readers and fellow writers. It is our personal touch, on everything from the feedback we give, to our aesthetic, to the lasting relationships we cultivate with our contributors, that distinguishes us as having a community-like atmosphere dedicated to a humanitarian approach to the arts. We value each individual writer and artist and what they bring to our publication. We aim to inspire, educate and stir the blood with powerful tales and powerful words. In our upcoming issues we hope to expand even further—stay tuned!
