Aleathia Drehmer is a writer of poetry and fiction. Her work has been widely published through the small press since 2006. Over the years she has served as an editor with Outsider Writers, MUST, Full of Crow, and Zygote in my Coffee as well as being the chief editor and publisher of a print micro-zine called Durable Goods and an online flash fiction website called In Between Altered States.
Since 2006, Aleathia has had several collections published in print. Two small 8 poem collections, “Thickets of Mayapple” and “Circles” were published by Kendra Steiner Editions. These collections have sold out and are currently out of print. She has a shared collection of poetry with Dan Provost from Rank Stranger Press called “A Quiet Learning Curve”. Her most recent collection, “You Find Me Everywhere” is still available from Propaganda Press. Aleathia has also edited an anthology of poetry for Tainted Coffee Press called “The Beards” which captured a movement of poets in the summer of 2008. She is also presently working on editing a compilation of fiction from the In Between Altered States first 30 episodes which should be due out some time in 2013.
2013 is marked with great changes and a need for simplicity. Aleathia Drehmer will be closing the doors on the print micro-zine Durable Goods in April of this year. She will continue to publish In Between Altered States, but at a slower pace. She has goals to hone her craft in both poetry and fiction without the desire to have any fanfare. This blog will represent her attempts to push forward in poetry, fiction, and art.
