MG, YA, & Adult Spec-Fic Poetry/Flash/Short Stories
I love the umbrella of speculative fiction, primarily fairy tales, folklore, mythology, and alternate history. I love how these types of stories speak to our “collective unconscious” (as Jung called it), meaning they speak to the universal truths of what it means to be human.
Last year I had my 1st flash fiction piece published in a journal, and am actively submitting flash fiction, short stories, and poetry to journals, e-zines, and anthologies.
When I’m not writing or reading, I can be found traveling, eating cake, or dancing!
I love fantasy worlds, wordplay and witticisms, slow-burn romances, unique descriptions, characters that kick butt (physically or mentally)… I love a lot of things, so this is by no means a complete list!
My favorite authors are Gail Carson Levine, Jane Yolen, Neil Gaiman, J.M. Barrie, and Christopher Healy. To find out more about my reading tastes and/or to compare virtual bookshelves, check out my Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/17649169.Jennifer_Bushroe
I’m not a good fit for stories that deal with sibling death.
Here are some best practices for reaching out to a potential CP:
- Include the link to your own CP Match profile! You can find it on your Dashboard. Don't have one yet? What are you waiting for? Anyone with a WriteOnCon.org account can make one!
- Introduce yourself a little, and say what appealed to you about their listing.
- Respect what's listed here in their profile. They took the time to fill it out, and they've included this information for a reason. Don't send a message about a book they specifically say is a Hard No, for example.
- Offer to swap a small sample of your works, so you can see if you're really compatible. First chapters are a good starting place.
- If one party no longer wants to continue the interaction, it's nobody's fault. Sometimes finding the right CP takes time.
Happy writing and CPing!
