See the submissions page for guidelines
I am a pushcart nominated poet, novelist, global thinker, activist on behalf of the abused and the poor, a staunch supporter of gay rights, women’s rights and an enthusiastic participant in our human experience as it is expressed through the collective beating heart of all artistic truth and beauty. I have been blogging my poetry here ages: ValBRussell. There, now that we have that we all that out of the way, send me your poetry and stories!
Art and Photography Editor
I am a musician, poet and art collector with a taste for biting truth and captivating imagery in all aspects of creative expression. In art there is truth and in truth there is liberty from slavery and oppression and it is in my capacity as art editor for Tuck I strive to discover the genius of this truth in every painting and photograph I view. Later this year I will launch Tuck’s music and film edition which will compliment the original site to enhance the artistic experience for you the reader/viewer. I will be looking to highlight film and music from many cultures as this is Tuck’s policy to unite independent artists from all over the world to create a tapestry of creation in each issue. Check the submissions guidelines page often for developments relating to our new site and call for submissions from film makers and musicians.

Book Review Editor
I am a former teacher and musician. I have worked as an editor and writer for several small publishers in Sydney, Australia. I have had some short stories published, as well as two plays. I also mess about with fiction on my blog. Once I was a hairsbreadth away from a publishing deal with a major publishing house. I have too many full length novels in my filing cabinet waiting to be submitted. I understand the vagaries of the writing life yet remain passionate about writers and writing. The world with all its flaws continues to inspire me.
