The Write Launch has been an idea for some time, originally conceived as the Featured Writers section on bookscover2cover. Back 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.

Today, the book reviews and author interviews remain on bookscover2cover, but the exceptional pieces of original work by a variety of writers and poets now have a new home at The Write Launch. And this is what The Write Launch is about: The short stories, poetry, essays, and novellas these talented authors have created through the force of their imagination.

It is a privilege to share their work with you. Enjoy, engage, and reflect on what you read here and consider publishing your original short story, poem, essay, or novella on The Write Launch.

To submit your work, please review the guidelines and submit here.

Thank you!


When you’re writing, you’re trying to find out something which you don’t know. The whole language of writing for me is finding out what you don’t want to know, what you don’t want to find out. But something forces you to anyway.James Baldwin
