Author's Bio

Alicia Mathias is a poet, writer, singer and photographer. Her poems have recently appeared in: Ann Arbor Review, January Review Journal, The Bitter Oleander, Unlikely Stories, and Clockwise Cat. She has new work forthcoming in: The Canopy Review, and elsewhere. Alicia has composed two poetry manuscripts, and two mixed-media chapbooks. She is working on a new collage/poem writing project, at the moment.  Alicia resides in New York and writes each day, with Zeppelin the Wonder Cat, by her side. Current goals are to teach creative writing, and (hopefully) have her first book published, while her parents are still alive to see it happen.
