Alicia Young is a poet, wife, mother, former mortician, middling pianist, and above average tap dancer. She has the tongue of a harpy, the heart of a benevolent queen, the gall of a mad king, and is rumored to be a wee bit of a tramp. She is a modern day Southern belle, born on Kentucky’s bourbon trail, and 7th great granddaughter of Pocahontas. She enjoys black coffee and Wild Turkey in the morning, complimented by a fine cigar at night. Her Electra complex is the stuff of legend. Her dog, Gussimer Puppenheimer, is a former mafioso turned pro-wrestler. Ms.Young is the baddest woman on the planet with a set of nunchaku while any southern rock is playing. She was previously published in The Long Islander, Cultural Weekly, American Funeral Director, The Vagina Gun, The Musophobist, The Montucky Review, Take-It-To-The-Streets-Poetry, The Juice Bar, The Moronic Ox Literary & Cultural Journal, and The Mas Tequila Review. Ms. Young is the author of Hell on Heels, poems by Alicia Young, Lady Lazarus Press, US, 2012, and Fried Chicken, Schmussy, & other Songs from a Baptist Hymnal, Leaky Boot Press, UK, 2016, and The Death of Disco, Poetic Justice Press, US, 2018.

She prides herself in being an ultra-runner. Her lifetime goal is to be ultra-marathon ready while she trains other to embrace the love of running
