Sudden Denouement’s New Writer Submissions will be open through May 23rd. We are asking for a sample of your writing. It doesn’t have to be unpublished, merely something that represents your voice as a writer. Does your writing style fit with Sudden Denouement? The term “divergent” literature is a loose one that means, first and foremost, that we are open to those voices to challenge the status quo, and we offer our writers a great deal of freedom.
Members of Sudden Denouement are asked to submit one unpublished piece of writing a month. We give our writers a great deal of leeway in terms of their artistic choices. Our objective is to provide a platform for literature that challenges specific norms. We will reblog posts from our writers’ personal sites on the weekends, and we become advocates of each other’s work. In doing this, we find that it creates a much larger audience of like-minded persons for each writer.
The writer does not have to be the solitary practitioner, there are others who are bound by a passion for writing that does not easily fit into a box or have an appropriate label. We believe that there is a “secret language,” as coined by Sam Lucero, that may have alienated some in the past but becomes a thing of power when our voices are joined in unison. Community amongst the like-minded can be very rewarding.
Is my writing good enough? Some of the worst writers in the world think they are great, and some of the most brilliant often languish without a true audience due to not realizing their value. We will be reblogging some of those who send submissions during the decision-making process.
