Welcome to Literary Misfits. This page is designed to help you get your bearings.

What We Hope to Accomplish

Here is a place for things and people that fall through the cracks: a celebration of everything that’s weird and uncommon.

We will try to include more writers that are…

  • LGBTQ+
  • People of color
  • Women
  • Disabled and/or neurodiverse
  • Located outside the US

Diversity is strength, and diversity in fiction makes things a hell of a lot more interesting.

What You Can Find Here

Reviews of short fiction, guides to literary journals, musings about the intersection of writing and social issues, and more.

We’re kicking off 2020 with series on writing with autism and foreign speculative fiction. Soon you’ll be able to find regular updates at The Market Review about recent calls for submissions and best practices for submitting your fiction.

Who Made All This?

Why, that would be me- Kino Piers Ronan. (Just Kino is fine.)

I’m a writer, lover of music, and parent to a lovely guiana chestnut. Located in sunny Tampa, FL.

Follow me on Instagram or Twitter for my eternal thanks, or you can get in contact with me here.

Who Am I?

My name is Kino! When not writing, I enjoy taking pictures of cats that are unfortunately not mine. I hope you'll stick around.
