Fresh & Ripe

Good literature is like fine fruit: FRESH AND RIPE. We publish by invitation short fiction and short nonfiction from two types of writers: FRESH-NEW WRITERS and RIPE-SEASONED AUTHORS who have a body of work to their credit and who deserve a wider reading audience. These are writers whose work we've enjoyed reading and believe you will, too. They're listed here in alphabetical order by last name, title and type of the author's piece following the name. We expect to add more to this list in the near future. Writecorner Press has received permission from each author on this page to publish his or her copyrighted piece. It may not be duplicated or reproduced in any way without permission from the author.
