The MockingOwl Roost is a literary magazine published by Rita Mock-Pike, Annali Carmel, and Soren Porter. Rita, a journalist, copywriter, and cookbook author by trade, saw a gap in the publishing industry where her award-winning journalist friends couldn’t get essays published simply because they didn’t “fit” in somewhere. Having relished a life of not fitting in for some 38-odd years, Rita went to Soren and Annali and said, “Here’s a thing we need to do.”

So, they did this thing.

And now the MockingOwl Roost exists.
