Spotlight No.1

Filed under: Special Features — Tags: , , , , , — Writers' Market Group Red Bubble @ 5:03 pm

Stumbled upon these gems in the group and just had to feature them.  Please take a look and support are fabulous writers.

The Moonchild Chronicles – Chapter One
by Becteri.
Written on the fly, this story packs a punch.  It’s dogs vs cats and a whole lot more.

Mom in Heaven Looking Down
by Poetic Genius
In his own words, “If you’ve lost someone this is for you as well.”

Untitled – Ch.1 (Draft)
by Kaiya Knox
Sure you can enjoy a polished story but the draft is the essence of a person’s inner thoughts and energies. It’s only afterwards we make it acceptable for the rest of the world.

Special Feature: Jihad

Filed under: Special Features — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , — Writers' Market Group Red Bubble @ 11:34 am

Welcome to the Writers’ Market Group daily feature.

Today we feature a poem titled Jihad by Natella2020.

The word Jihad is an Arabic word which means struggle, a word which suits this poem well. I saw this poem a motivational and inspirational piece, indicating the need to survive great odds; failing and triumphing in the end.

Here are some of the comments the poem received:

beautifully written

Deep, Powerful imagery, very thought provoking, loved the first stanza and the second and the third, actually I can’t quite decide. I loved the title best of all, very fitting and stirring…

…this is one of the best written pieces I have read to date from you. Imagery, yes – powerful, yes – but the words used and how they are constructed in the verses are outstanding…

Below is a snippet.


Broken ax meets solid summit
Solid power, solid fear
With a force of golden passion
And a tide of joyous tears

Natella2020 is a writer who is passionate about islam and science. I find her pieces are thought provoking and offers conscience messages readers can take with them.

In Natella’s words, “My goal is to start a revolution in scientific thought by adding a spark of artistic style and the eloquence and power of the written word. If I make an impression on the mind of one person, my journey will be worthwhile, and my goal accomplished.”

Special Feature: Varga Girl

Filed under: Special Features — Tags: , , , , , , , , — Writers' Market Group Red Bubble @ 9:13 am

Welcome to the Writers’ Market Group daily feature.

Today we feature a poem titled Varga Girl by Nicole Ryan. A piece with a strong lyrical feel and an eerie, lingering, feeling of a woman who saw what they wanted to be and who they are now.

Here are some of the comments the story received:

What a cool, creative concept Nicole, and the words flow right off the pages of that magazine you described beautifully. Well done!

I wanted to be a Varga Girl too…..I’ve goosebumps reading this….
So real……

just brilliant!

Below is a snippet of the story.

Varga Girl

I tore you from the centre
of a magazine
carefully avoiding ripping holes
in the underside of your elbows

Nicole Ryan co-ordinates her writing with her duties of motherhood. Her writing time is similar to loose change found at the back of a lounge. She is proud mum to four beautiful children and happily married. She hopes to, one day, become a successful, published writer. With work such as Varga Girl, I can see this in the making.

Special Feature: Forgotten

Filed under: Special Features — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — Writers' Market Group Red Bubble @ 5:45 pm

Welcome to the Writers’ Market Group feature.

Today’s feature is a poem written by Girlinthestars, which is titled Forgotten. It is a breathtaking piece of love and passion where the words themselves form a savoury concoction that linger in you mind.

Here are some of the comments the poem received:

Oh my God Amy – I can’t tell you how deeply this touched me! How incredibly poignant this is and how true! Just an amazing work, my good friend!

“As you rolled on top of me in the most splendid state of sweat.”
Imagined or not this is really powerful, your writing has such an excellent flow to it, everything I read of yours has such a pull from one line to the next. Very nice work.

You made me all misty again……..really now, is there someone behind all of this heartfelt pain? If so either you need to make a call or he doesn’t deserve you.;)

Below is a snippet of the poem.


I’m broken now
But I have not forgotten the way it feels
To swallow rain like candy drops
And then to

Girlinthestars has been writing poetry since the age of fourteen. A collection of her works has been published in books which can be found at amysampsonbooks.com. When she is not writing, she is being a proud mother of a beautiful boy.

This is a special issue congratulating Damian for winning the groups’ Get eBook Published Competition and to mighty thanks to Vim Lowenstein , Felinemind and Bchrisdesigns for their wonderful selections.

Not bad for a man of science.
