Poem: The Fine Art of Vigilance

The Fine Art of Vigilance This replication, this hidden secret beneath my skin unlocked by the sun has me searching for shade and shadows. Everything that growsneeds light and warmth.It’s a power we alltake for granted. I feel my mind fall into obsessionabout times of day and UV indexabout covering every inch of my body. A hole in […]

Writing: Taking Pause

I’ve been gone a month. A lot can happen with one doctor’s visit. It changes the landscape of an entire life. The end of August I got a new doctor, one that was local and in walking distance. During a basic exam she noted the large number of moles on my back and briefly scanned […]

Writing: When you can’t write, edit.

A month ago I took a step back from producing fresh work on my novels. It has been a hard block of weeks and I wish I could say that my coffers were brimming with words, but they aren’t. This week my two best writing friends had some exciting news. One agent took her whole […]

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.
