Kate Robinson - Editor

Gaia

Overview

I began writing bad poetry in Des Moines, Iowa and continued to hone my writing chops in Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, New Mexico, Wales, and Kenya, which serves me well as chief wordwhacker at Starstone Lit Services and Tootie-Do Press, Los Angeles. I treasures the appearance of the extraordinary in ordinary daily life and try always to dance with paradox and absurdity.
