Who Who Whom?

Marya Layth is a poet, visual artist, and recreational fantasy writer (whatever that means). But if you really want to get to know Marya, she suggests you read her poetry.

Sometimes she likes to say her poetry out loud in a room full of strangers. Sometimes she likes to create strange art for her poetry that she shares on the internet. Sometimes she likes to send her poems to literary journals and see what happens.

Once, Write Bloody Publishing chose her working poetry collection as a finalist. More than once, she has been featured in some pretty neat literary journals. A few of those literary journals nominated her poems from said collection for a Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net.

When she isn't doing any of the above, she is keeping it weird and whimsical with her cat Pippin somewhere in New Jersey.
