Year after year, we review dozens of reader nominations, revisit sites from past lists, consider staff favorites and search the far-flung corners of the web for new additions—aiming for a varied compilation that will prove an asset to any writer, of any genre, at any experience level. This selection represents our picks for the top online writing communities.
The Shasta Community College Creative Writing Club is proud to announce that we are creating a literary magazine for the school year. The literary magazine will be published in cooperation with the Office of Access and Equity, so we are primarily interested in work that includes voices from diverse communities or pieces on diversity or community, but we encourage writers and artists from ALL backgrounds to submit your work. We are accepting fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, and visual art pieces. Short stories and creative nonfiction should be no longer than words.
