The Scarlet Ibis Fiction Group

Every sixth Thursday (every six weeks)

Christi runs the Scarlet Ibis’, a Caribbean and Caribbean Diaspora fiction group run through Strange Birds MeetUp page. We put out a call for new members in the summer months (June/July).

“To date the group deals with fiction in short story and novel form (cap is 10,000 words). That said, we are open to creative nonfiction submissions. We have no restrictions on the type of fiction submitted. We are a group that typically write realist, magical real, or fabulist fiction but are open to other genres. You’re always welcome to join the waitlist or reach out to me via MeetUp if you’re curious to know more.”
