Hello Artists, Writers, Poets, & Storymakers,

It’s hard to believe the year is almost over; I’m not sure where the time goes. Tempus fugit, as my father likes to remind me. Anyhow, life and work go on, and change is always happening. So it is here at Storymaker.

A little while ago, I had considered closing the publication. But after several of you offered to help, and a couple of subsequent changes in personnel, Anna Rozwadowska has joined as co-editor, and we’re relaunching.

I think we are set to grow Storymaker as the place to go for great poetry & prose and a community for writers, poets and artists that I had first imagined it to be.

We’re launching a competition too! Find out about the Anthology Competition below 👇

So Going Forward…

A Quick Word From Anna

I am super proud of embarking on this joint venture with Larry, who has been keeping Storymaker alive. We are planning on re-resurrecting the publication and providing a home that no one offers on Medium. What this means for the writer, is that it will be a place where you want to publish your poems, a warm and inviting home, but also for seasoned writers, as we intend to build our audience. Having said that, we so much look forward to housing your talent at Storymaker, we will be expeditious with response time, and promise to give each writer a fair chance to come home and look at their work, with pride and joy.

-Anna Rozwadowska, co-editor of Storymaker.
