Poetry Reading: Open Mic at Card Carrying Books

Article Series: Inspiring Youth Through Poetry

I am a day late in posting the link for my final article on poetry for National Poetry Month for Southern Tier Life Magazine as I was out getting some fresh air and sunshine. It has been a pleasure to write these articles about poetry which has been the one true creative mode of my […]

New Publications

This collection of poems is about noticing the small things about the human condition that people often miss because they are racing through life…running red lights…to get to wherever they are going. What is missed is the pain and suffering, the small intangible joys, and the quiet spaces. You can reserve a copy from Gutter Snob Books now. The release date is in March 2022.

My first full length collection of poetry, Looking for Wild Things (Impspired, 2021) is available through Amazon. If you would like a signed copy (US only) for $13 including shipping, then email me at aleathiadrehmer@gmail.com.

Current Projects

Poetry

Currently working on a full-length collection of poetry called “Borrowed Light.”

Fiction

I am currently taking a break from fiction writing for my first love–poetry. I have a long story called “The Exchange Room” which will be a part of the Agents of the Abyss series.

Art

I am currently in the process of finishing three cross stitch projects: Anthony Bourdain, Frida Kahlo, and Fox Mulder. I just finished a prop quilt for “Into the Woods” at the local middle school and have several sewing/beading/painting projects in the works.


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.
