I’m Julia Tagliere, writer, editor, and purveyor of unsolicited opinions. From freelancer cattle calls and self-publishing to M.A. programs, lit journals, and fellowships, I’ve been climbing the literary food chain since 2005. AMA!
Why am I doing this AMA? I've been told it's because someone saw my awesome interview with the divine Dara Beevas (co-founder of Wise Ink Creative Publishing), wherein we discuss marketing e-books, and they thought I'd be interesting; I suspect, however, it's more because I rock my Minnesota accent hard in that video, don'tcha know, so maybe they were just looking for a laugh (see for yourself: Julia Talks Marketing in Bitchin' Minnesota Accent). Either way, I'm delighted.
Some legit creds: The Writer, The Bookends Review, Potomac Review, a handful of anthologies; Best Short Story, 2015 William Faulkner Literary Competition; 2017 Writers Center Undiscovered Voices Fellowship; M.A. in Writing, Johns Hopkins University; fiction/CNF editor with The Baltimore Review; working on my next novel, The Day the Music Didn’t Die.
How I got to this rung of the food chain: newsletter writer/editor for church and professional editors' association; vanity books ghostwriter; English-Spanish website translator (because also former high school Spanish/French teacher); SEO serf; grant writer for a lovely nonprofit; associate/digital editor, Hay & Forage Grower magazine (yes, that’s a real thing); self-publisher of my first novel, Widow Woman, in 2012. Like most writers I know, I've worked hard for those creds.
Here's my website (has my blog, where to find my publications, and all my social media): justscribbling.com
Proof: Yes, it's really me, Julia
