Amanda Oaks is the founding editor of Words Dance Publishing. Her works have appeared in numerous online & print publications, including Stirring, Dressing Room Poetry Journal, Glamour, Elle, Parenting & Artful Blogging. Her chapbook, Hurricane Mouth, is forthcoming from NightBallet Press early 2014.

Donna-Marie Riley is, first and foremost, a poet, albeit one with a shaking voice. At seven years old her second grade teacher personally bought her a journal and instructed her to “write everything.” So she did. Her first collection, Love and Other Small Wars, is available from Words Dance Publishing.

Caitlyn Siehl is a 20 year old writer from New Jersey who thinks poetry tastes good. She started writing about two years ago and never really stopped. Her first book of poems, entitled “What We Buried” will be available for purchase soon from Words Dance Publishing.


We hope to see you there!
