Micro-fiction: 2 am Ineptitude

2 am Ineptitude Awkwardly, Diane held the woman’s dead hand trying to slide off the wedding rings. Her skin, like cold clay, gave resistance. The gold circle spun,               a large document              , uploading. She looked away with sudden 2 am ineptitude. He […]

Art for Sale: Picasso Portrait

Ever since I was a young girl, I was fascinated with Picasso. There is something inspiring about the child-like way he approaches the canvas. I have always kept in mind that the little girl inside me that always wanted to be an artist could find her way. Much of my life has been about writing […]

Book Review: The Polish Boxer by Eduardo Halfon

I started reading this book in 2020, but did not get to finish it. I’ve had quite a few holdovers from the year before as I read too many books at once and then not finish them. I chose The Polish Boxer by Eduardo Halfon from the shelves of a used book sale. I liked […]

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.
