"It is my attempt to help other creatives and storytellers who wouldn't get the time of day from the traditional media outlets. If I can help people tell the story behind their stories, something they can share with personal and business relationships to help them succeed, I will be happy. In roleplaying advanced literate means that you're the cream of the crop, that you put in the time to develop your prose and deliver a meaningful product that few can compare with. Being literate means you're well versed in a subject, someone I would call a geek. The goal here is to show off people's literacy in their field, and acknowledging the time and effort they've put in to become aspiring professionals." - Taylor Vogt

Editor in Chief

I've been writing prose fiction since I joined an Inuyasha roleplaying guild on Neopets when I was 7. Mentored by Professor Poe in undergrad, entering an MFA at Manhattanville College and 4 books (with two rewrites) later, I am ready to share what I've learned.
