ANNOUNCEMENT: The Chick Lit Nestlings have flown the coop, going our separate ways to create more fun, sassy, women's fiction and romantic comedy on our own profiles. We learned a lot. We had a lot of fun.
We will leave our list up and perhaps in the future we will publish some more magazines. For now, though, we are on hiatus. Thank you for stopping by. Browse around. Sample our stories. And most important, happy reading and writing!
Praise from a reader of PINK DANDELION QUARTERLY: "I have a confession to make. I've read this whole thing twice. You've done absolutely fabulous job! Well done, ladies! Can't wait for the next issue 😊 ❤."
The ChickLit Nest was a 2019 writing group that created the kind of sassy, funny Chick Lit stories that Wattpad readers crave. Our goals were better writing, unique storytelling, and dreaming up flawed but likable heroines that you'd want for your own best friend.

What is Chick Lit? Good question!
A Chick Lit novel tells the story of a heroine who struggles with one or many aspects of her life--relationships, school, family, career, finances. Definitely flawed, she learns and grows, emerging wiser and stronger at the end of the book.
Though Chick Lit is lighthearted in tone, like a romantic comedy, the themes are often serious: self-esteem, addiction, failure, divorce, unplanned pregnancy, for example. These are explored with humor and irony and self-deprecation rather than brooding angst and triggering, dark behaviors. Think Waiting to Exhale, Bridget Jones's Diary, The Devil Wears Prada, Sex and the City.
