We Are The Phoenix Quill – Why You Should Join


We are The Phoenix Quill.

Why should you care? Because we’re a group of writers just like you.

Imagine a room full of writers, some new, some seasoned, some published, some fumbling around in the dark clutching for a morsel of insight into the big scary world that is publishing. Picture, if you will, the room is dim, glasses clinking. Someone tells a joke in the left hand corner, and the room erupts into boisterous laughter. Later someone sniffs into a half empty glass of watered down whisky, lamenting over his latest rejection. The room goes silent for a moment and an arm reaches out to clasp his shoulder.

“I’ve been there, bro.”

You might ask how an online group can feel like a room full of folks chuckling, debating, encouraging. There is a spark in The Phoenix Quill. A light that burns so bright it draws us like moths to a flame. Why? Because we are real with one another. And with only one rule: don’t be an ass, the Quillians flourish.

The upcoming publication of our first anthology spurred the idea to form a site. One that would feature blogs from our writers and showcase the vast array of style and interests. We will cover writing topics for enrichment, enlightenment, and pure entertainment. Two pages of our site are dedicated to writing tips/tools, and world building/plotting. You can read more about who we are on the Meet the crew page, hone skills by writing a short paragraph from the writing prompt page, or simply enjoy a blog or two.Without further ado, I invite you to join with us. As we of The Phoenix Quill would say, “Come on in, the water’s fine.”

    1. It’s funny what the right mix of people in a closed group on Facebook can do for communication. I get so much from the other writers there. Not only is it about writing, but also about how you live your life and find time to write. It makes me feel less alone in my struggles.


  1. Most Recent Anonymous (the one who has no need to resort to ad hominem foul laYn)ageu:gou get the big idea here… have America commit to an Energy Manhattan Project, or a Kennedy-esque Energy to the Moon in Ten Years project, and LEARN, in our American commitment, what CAN and CANNOT be done in the way of fusion… Learn in a rapid, timely manner based on scientific reality… not anger, denial or name-calling.


  2. Can you imagine the chaos there would be for so many if the truth about GMO’s was understood – including the farmer who grows GMO’s – cause there is NOT a lot of choice anymore since the biochem companies put so many small farmers and seed companies out of business – not to mention the companies who “manufacture” the processed stuff? It is not as if people are totally unaware. They are. They just don’t know what to do about it esp. because so much of what we eat is less than “natural”.
