Writing has been my passion since I started reading lit seriously in my second year of school. After 6-7 years of keen pursuit, I can honestly say it’s simply what I love most in life – its endless challenge, and its spiritual exercise. If something sets me apart, it’s not the experiences I’ve had that I endeavour to share – it’s the time I’ve spent reading, sipping the great voices of the form, and trying to let them flow through in my own language. At RL, I write meditative pieces on issues of everyday human life.

Nate Frase is a freelance writer, photographer, musician and traveling drone operator. Hailing from Columbus Ohio, his eclectic list of skillsets have carried him all around the United States over the course of the last decade, cultivating an interesting and unique perspective that's best displayed through his comedic writing style. Well known in his early years as a troublemaker/Class clown, Nate's prankster persona was a constant source of unwanted attention from authority figures. Kicked out of school several times over, his path was seemingly headed to nowhere. But after being tested for learning disabilities as a last ditch effort to salvage his academic career, a beloved guidance counselor took notice of a bored brilliance previously mistaken as an inability to follow direction. With the proper care and guidance, Nate's talents were honed and focused into several successful creative careers, with work featured everywhere from local news outlets and radio stations to gaining recognition from industry leaders on both the national and global scale. Nowdays, at the age of 31, Nate can be found back in his home state of Ohio, working on various creative projects, creating viral content and raising his two sons, Adam and August.

Writing is not just a passion, it is a dream. I write about life, love, work and the pursuit of your best tomorrow. My passion for writing bloomed when I realized that I want to dedicate my time bringing personal stories to life. My stories are all inspired by true events or everyday conversations.
Riley Pierce is a sex worker, semi-professional belly-dancer, psychology student, and sexuality enthusiast based in Melbourne, Australia. A regular writer in her own free time, she is delighted to have an opportunity to share that writing on a new platform with a bigger focus on specific issues that interest her. Riley works with the belief that empathy and understanding can help reduce stigma and judgement and hopes to contribute to a world where people are free to be themselves without judgement from others. The understanding of the experiences of others may also offer insight and personal growth that can benefit each of us, and these discussions can hopefully generate interpersonal and intrapersonal growth. At the same time, she recognises that many of the issues she loves to talk about are incredibly complex and nuanced, and often simplified within the media for the sake of an easy read or due to a lack of awareness. She hopes to contribute to discussions around these issues in a way that acknowledges these complexities and brings about a deeper level of understanding.
