I have had a lifetime of powerful dreams. Many of these I can still remember in detail from twenty or more years ago. There was a time in my life where this ability was heightened and my recall fantastic. If I look back on these times it is usually when I am under great emotional […]
Many years ago I got into writing different types of formed poetry. I have always been a free verse sort of girl, but have appreciated what it takes to write in meter or form. This poem is a Sestina. I cannot validate how well crafted it is, but it was fun to write. The joy […]
Bones of a Friend The bones feel disconnected in his hands; they feel limp like a sleeping infant. Barnabus is almost afraid to peel back the silken edges, afraid of what he might find though the linear part of his brain knows very well what he will see. They gleam against the blanket, against the […]

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.
