- Elaine Sexton – I’ve been attending weekly workshops with her since September 2014. What a great mentor!
- Adriana Rambay Fernandez– Soon to be earning an MFA at Bennington, Adriana is a well-rounded writer who writes fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. I was lucky to be a partner with her in writing a poem a day in April 2016.
- Maja Lukic – A fellow poet with whom I love to share work. We both work under the guidance of Elaine Sexton.
- Abigail Lorraine – We both love working science into our poetry (her science is physics, mine is usually biology). She is a visual artist as well, please check out her work.
- Kevin Singer– brilliant writer who writes supernatural/suspense, but has been known to pen a literary tale or a poem from time to time.
- Lana Rose– a poet who hosts welcoming open mics (Wordsmithing) in Jersey City.
- Jersey City Writers – hosts a genre night every other month. Keep an eye out for when they are accepting submissions!
- Cross Poetry Review – held every other month, generally on a Sunday afternoon, this series brings together talented poets from both sides of the Hudson (both NJ and NY).
- Jersey City Slam– competitive yet also supportive, a great place to work on your performance skills.
- Wordsmithing – another fixture in the Jersey City literary scene. Thanks to Lana Rose for organizing!
