I am Brenda Bishop Blakey, a native of Atlanta, Georgia. My writing appears in With Painted Words, 50-to-1 Blog Spot, Trapeze, The Camel Saloon, Nail Polish Stories, Every Day Poems, Blink-Ink, Red Ochre LiT, The Corner Club Press, Schrodinger’s Mouse, and many other fine journals. Several of my poems and stories have been anthologized. I am honored to have a poem included in vol. #10 of iARTistas edited by the talented Dulce Maria Menendez. On two separate occasions, I won the 53 Word Contest held by Press 53. Also, I was a finalist in the Fourteenth Annual Glass Woman Prize awarded by the ever generous Beate Sigriddaughter.
