Guest Poet: Michelle Diaz
Michelle Diaz has been writing since the late 90s. She has been published widely both online and in print in magazines such as Prole, Strix, Under the Radar, Amaryllis, Algebra of Owls and Domestic Cherry. Her debut pamphlet The Dancing Boy was published earlier this year by Against the Grain Poetry Press. She ran a poetry group in Glastonbury for 2 years and is part of Wells Fountain poets. Without poetry her soul would be very hungry.
