About Byline Legacies

Short Blurb

Filled with memories, anthems, and commiserations, Byline Legacies is an embodiment of the writer experience, created for writers in the spirit of solidarity and celebration of the creative lifestyle.

Long Blurb

Can you craft a narrative that feels like a memory to every writer?

This is what we asked, and you delivered. Featuring fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, Byline Legacies illustrates the true experience of the writer. Every page is a nostalgic collage of the writing community’s ups and downs — love letters to our greatest influencers, anthems for the moments we persevered, and confessions by the battle-scarred who know the journey isn’t easy. The writing community’s greatest strength is companionship. Byline Legacies is an ode to that strong bond, calling on every writer and reader to find themselves within the prose and know that no matter their experience, they are not alone in feeling it.
