A Little Bit About Me

My name is Maria. I'm a poet, storyteller, tequila lover, and a big believer in the power of writing shit down.

My work has been published in many reputable literary magazines including Contemporary Verse 2, the York Journal, and Imposter.

I am the founder of Gather, a writing table dedicated to craft and community. I call Toronto, Canada home.

You can follow my work on Instagram @theguelphpoet.

I am represented by Carly Watters at P.S. Literary Agency.
