"The primary Imagination I hold to be the living power and prime agent of all human perception, and as a repetition in the finite mind of the eternal act of creation in the infinite I AM."
Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Biographia Literaria

Our Mission

We are writers whose passion begins with the Imagination. Who believe Creativity resides in all humans. As writers, we are committed to building up our common humanity through the written word. To shine a light on the values that connect us with each other. Fairness, insight, compassion, integrity, self-reflection.

The Imagination and Creativity are essential to being alive. They transport us to fictional worlds, broaden our understanding of differences among people, expand our knowledge of the worlds around us, and allow us insight into our inner lives.

The Write Launch is about writing and, by extension, our common humanity. This is our vision. To delve into the Imagination as manifested in the written word and to inspire writers to seek the Creativity that lives within. To bring forth our vision of the Humanities Decade.

We believe that

  • The Imagination and Creativity are at the core of life itself
  • Literature engages the Imagination and Creativity
  • Literature enlightens writers, readers, thinkers, and doers
  • Literature serves the principles and values of the Humanities
  • The Imagination and Creativity realize the Humanities


The Write Launch has been an idea for some time, originally conceived as the Featured Writers section on bookscover2cover. Then, bookscover2cover published book reviews and original writing, but with the passage of time we determined that the featured writers needed their own site.

Thus, The Write Launch began.

Today, book reviews and author interviews define bookscover2cover, but exceptional original work by selected authors and poets now have a home at The Write Launch. This is what The Write Launch is about: Literature that talented authors and poets have created through the force of their imagination. It is a privilege to share their creative imagination with you.

Enjoy, engage, and reflect on what you read here and consider publishing your original poetry, short story, long short story, novel excerpt, and creative nonfiction on The Write Launch.
