Thanks for stopping by!

“The Angel in the House” is Virginia Woolf’s metaphor for the inner censor of writers—the sinister voice that whispers, “Don’t write anything controversial; be sweet; write only about sugar and spice.”  Woolf instructs writers to kill the angel so that they may write freely and honestly.  Following Woolf's message, Killing the Angel magazine will be for lovers of literature that breaks to the true heart of our existence.

Categories for submission will include fiction, poetry, nonfiction, novella serialization, author interviews, writing contests, and writing prompts.

When I'm not dreaming up new and exciting literary projects, I can be found teaching high school English and blogging about teaching, writing, and how the two intersect at www.JessicaRosevear.com.
