Conceived in December 2008 as a collective effort of MFA students, The Whistling Fire provides a forum where fresh voices share creative works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. We encourage writers with an eye toward publication to submit their works or works in progress, as we wish to showcase a diverse array of styles and voices.
We encourage our readers to comment on posted works in the spirit of constructive criticism. Positive feedback is always welcomed; constructive literary criticism is encouraged. Our aim is to encourage the writing process.
Please enjoy our site and share us with your literary-minded friends. The Whistling Fire is updated regularly with fresh works by new writers. Come back often and see what’s new.
We look forward to reading you,
Lindsey Lewis Smithson
