Angela Carter

Author's Bio

Angela M. Carter was born, and raised, in a Virginia farming town of less than 280 country-folk. Angela moved abroad, to England, for nearly five years and returned to sweet Virginia with a new-found confidence, and voice. Her first full-length poetry collection, Memory Chose a Woman’s Body (unbound CONTENT) is a poetic journey that spotlights the effects of the silences endured after negative life occurrences, and openly describes the difficult roads she travelled on her way towards healing. Angela is a poetry editor of CityLitRag (NYC webzine), a coordinator of Rocktown Poetry Circle, a motivational speaker, an artist, and has obtained article and anthology publications. She currently lives in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley with her husband, two daughters, two dogs and with dreams of making others aware that every moment has a butterfly effect into our (and others’) futures.
