About Steven Underwood
Hi. My name is Steven. I do the unexpected.
Recently, I've been shopping my debut novel, Ebony Antebellum, around, pitching short stories and flash fiction and working full-time as a writer. Here, I will provide not only provide Writing Criticism and Tips for emerging writers and amateurs alike, but release some of my own exclusive stories and narratives.
Everything is behind very beautiful $1 Pay Window because: aye, stories should be affordable to all. For criticism and creative/senstivity edits, I will expect a Blue Blood tier contribution, and then I'll happily take 1-3 weeks to respond to your material (forgive me, I'm a Graduate Student). For a quicker response, please send me one scene at a time.
