Writing Raw is a FREE weekly literary magazine dedicated to new and emerging writers. Our goal at Writing Raw is simple - to serve the literary community with the opportunity to have their work online and out in the world. In this world of disappearing literary magazines, Writing Raw is providing the blank pages for writers to fill.

really BAD Shakespeare is back with only one episode left before the second season finale! Armageddon has begun, an unidentified woman is pregnant with the new Christ, and Shakespeare has apparently opted for the comforts of the Garden of Eden over the horrors of Hell. With all of this happening, in under 1,500 words per episode, one has to wonder what the HELL could possible go wrong now. The End of Days is in full swing… grab your party favors before it’s too late!
Between the Sheets - Super Sad Love Story by Gary Shteyngart, is online now. Our next book will be, actually, three books: The Deptford Trilogy by Robertson Davies. If you would like to send in your own review of this book, please send it to Weeb@writingraw.com.
WritingRaw also supports other sites that help writers: www.WritingRaw.com believes in reaching out to other sites, writing groups, forums, and organizations. Contact us on how you can place a FREE banner, announcement or link on our site! Or, perhaps you would like to partner in some way with WritingRaw (column, monthly essay, writing tips, etc.). We are open to ideas…
Or, use the Writing Raw Book Store to promote your novel or poetry collection: If you have a novel or collection that you would like to place in our store, we would be more than happy to do so – for FREE. Just send us a copy of the cover of the book (jpeg, bmp, etc. – please don’t send pdf), a brief synopsis, and a link as to where the material can be purchased.
We are also looking for people to write weekly columns, such as – book and publishing news, exercise and tips, or… well, we are always open to suggestions to help make the site one of the most informative and innovative out there. Let us know if you would like to help in this aspect. All columns will have your byline, your bio information (with hot links to your site), and you will retain all copyright.
The Wall now contains one Shout-Out box so you can self-promote your material or whatever you would like others to know about, cartoons, and various fun applications ranging from daily horoscopes to playing with a Magic 8 Ball!
The archive has been somewhat purged (after 2 years of material, we needed to clean up some) but, if your material was on WritingRaw.com before the purge and is no longer listed in the archive, we will be more than happy to place it back. Just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know.
