About Our Site and Writers' Group


The Realms of Fiction website promotes writers and the craft of fiction writing.  We are open to most short story and novel fiction genres.  We do not support poetry as a primary writing genre or pornography.  This site provides an informational web presence for the Realms of Fiction Writers' Group.  The Writers' Group was named after this site and has the same mission as the website.  Our talented group of writers usually meet on the second Monday of the month at the Barnes and Noble Bookstore in Metairie, Louisiana and the fourth Monday of the month at the Barnes and Noble Bookstore in Harvey, Louisiana on the Westbank Expressway.


E-mail RandyRoussell@gmail.com before attending a meeting and put the words REALMS MEETING in caps on the subject line of your e-mail message.


Visitors must bring three copies of a short story or chapter (limited to five pages) for evaluation.  To become a member, a visitor must attend four consecutive meetings and receive a positive review on their writing sample.


New associate members that miss four meetings during their initial six month probationary period may not return to the group as a member.  We do this in an attempt to protect the intellectual property of our writers from individuals that take our writing submissions with the intent of never returning to our meetings.  After six months, associates in good standing are eligible for regular member status.


The Realms of Fiction Writers' Group was formed in August 2003.  We are a productive group of writers that take our craft seriously.  The group offers critiquing, motivational and positive support to members.


We welcome literary agents, publishers or published authors that would like to make a pro bono presentation to our group.  To make arrangements with us, please send an e-mail to: RandyRoussell@gmail.com.




Reserved Space


Come and visit with the Realms of Fiction Writers' Group!


After your visit and if we invite you to join, there are no dues.


Membership is free and we do not require that you join a

national writers' group in order to benefit as a member.


Our requirements are that you attend our meetings on a reasonable basis,

and that you are an active committed participant.


We do not want members that are spectators, unproductive or writer "groupies".


But . . .

Being in a writers' group can wear members down over time.  The work can be difficult and tiring,

especially when you have family responsibilities and are holding down a job.  We recognize this

and suggest that sometimes a sabbatical from Realms of Fiction for an indefinite period is

necessary to recharge a member's "writing batteries".  This option is available to members

that have been with our group on a consistent basis for at least one year.



Writing courses are sometimes

offered by the following

organizations in the

New Orleans Metro area:


Tulane University
