Kindra M. Austin, Nicole Lyons, and Christine E. Ray are known in the indie writing world for their love of cutting edge literature, telling hard truths, and their support of emerging writing voices. These veterans of various writing collectives and small independent press dreamed of an online writing community that encouraged them to embrace their dark sides, experiment with new writing genres, push boundaries, actively engage with other writers, and give and get support. A place where writers can become core members or can submit writing when time and creativity allows.
Heretics, Lovers, and Madmen launched in May of 2019 to provide just such a space for writers. We are currently recruiting both core members, as well as featured writing from more occasional submitters who prefer to participate when the muse hits.
