Meet professional writers, and their works

Read The Story Behind the Story

Here you will find our Free Textbook Material -- and free professional stories to read plus closeups on the books by our Writers In Residence.

Some are reprints, some original online publications for the general reader to enjoy.  

The student of writing or the curious reader will find   "out-takes" and early drafts of published works, outlines, notes, brainstorming scribbles, "Partials," submission drafts and selling-outlines, free chapters of published novels, articles about those novels and universe building behind them -- all texts for study and discussion -- 


Writers in Residence Personal pages, essays, links, plans, insights, biography, bibliography and ways to contact the professional writers whose works are showcased here.   Writers currently include: a growing number in our Spotlights section, plus Jacqueline Lichtenberg, Jean Lorrah, Anne Phyllis Pinzow, Lois Wickstrom, Margaret L. Carter, and Elizabeth Caldwell.  
Books in Print, Production and Progress by Professional Writers The novels, series, and universes by professional writers giving you a behind-the-scenes look at the business of being a writer.  

For example: 
 Example of a Novel Outline that sold before the book was completed.    Soon you can read that novel, Zelerod's Doom,  in Sime~Gen: The Unity Trilogy.  

 Zhag&Tonyo - a work in progress by Jean Lorrah.

and more.  

Spokes - the poetry and short-fiction e-zine Spokes is an international poetry e-zine that welcomes poetry, short fictional prose and images of all kinds - with a particular interest in the culturally engaged and the fantastic. Spokes is 'published' twice yearly.

In its past incarnation as an international poetry magazine, Spokes published poetry by Benjamin Zephaniah, Jean Binta Breeze, Dannie Abse, Peter Porter, John James, Shanta Acharya and many many more. Alistair Wisker and Gina Wisker were its co-editors for the last 12 years or so.


Joining simegen.com in 2005, Spokes is now open to submissions of poetry and short fiction as well as images.

There is currently no payment to authors, but we expect this venue to be very popular.  

This is the second e-zine to use simegen.com/writers/ as a launch platform into e-publishing.

"The If Only Project" 
a rough draft of the E-Book IF ONLY by Renee Austin, editorial commentary, author's response, and full rewrite of that novel, retitled WYSIWYG, now published.  
This is one of the most valuable textbook items if you go over to awe-struck and pick up the FINAL version of this novel, WYSIWYG, and study all of this, you will sell your next novel that you begin to draft from scratch (rather than trying to salvage older material)
