Heretics, Lovers, and Madmen Now Recruiting Core Members and Accepting Featured Submissions

Kindra M. Austin, Nicole Lyons, and Christine E. Ray are known in the indie writing world for their love of cutting edge literature, telling hard truths, and their support of emerging writing voices.  These veterans of various writing collectives and small independent presses dreamed of an online writing community that encouraged them to embrace their dark sides, experiment with new writing genres, push boundaries, actively engage with other writers, and give and get support.  A place where writers can become core members or can submit writing when time and creativity allows.
