About Me

Aleathia Drehmer has been writing since the age of ten when she found a shoe box full of her father’s poetry. Since 2006, she has published extensively online and in print. Aleathia has been editor and co-editor of several publications including Durable Goods, In Between Altered States, Zygote in My Coffee, Full of Crow, and Regardless of Authority.

Aleathia started writing after discovering her father was a poet and that a person could transform the world they see into words. As a young girl, poetry taught her how to connect with other people.

Much of Aleathia’s writing journey has been personal and would have stayed that way until a friend encouraged her to send her work out in the world in 2006. She learned a lot in those early days about writing and the business/politics of small press publishing. Presently, she is writing a novel.

When she is not working or writing, Aleathia finds joy in hiking, disc golf, sewing, and various modes of art. She is currently active in two writing groups.
