| Author Alicia Winski, of Seattle, was born and raised in Southern CA.Â Having lived many of her formative years in several beach areas such as Venice, Playa del Rey and Malibu, California, she developed an early affinity for water and often incorporates that affinity, along with her love of music and color, into much of her writing.Â Her work has been featured in numerous publications, and her first poetry collection, Running On Fumes was published in early 2010, with a second and third collection, titled respectively, of dreams & mortality and Naughty Girls Dream In Color, Â set for release sometime in 2015.
Cutting her teeth publishing at a small press located in southern California, Winski broke away in 2013, creating her own press, NightWing Publications. To date, NightWing Publications has published the amazing anthology, ...and it happened under cover, and Dancing On Broken Glass, by Barbara H. Moore. With a full plate on the horizon, NightWing has created a separate publishing entity, "fledgling, ink", with expectations of keeping both companies busy for the next two years. In her own work, Alicia Winski brings a fiercely honest approach to poetry in a uniquely strong and feminine voice.
