Robert Nicholas Taylor & Christina Anne Taylor

I’m Christina. Poetica~Place is my literary blog that encompasses two micro-presses as well as book reviews, “Coffee with the Poets” interviews, etc. (Click on the authors’ names to view their titles.)

As micro-publishers, my husband and I self-publish through our private imprint, The Red Salon. I also publish others’ poetry through Middle Island Press, Appalachia’s finest and most aspiring publishing company, proudly international with its roots in chapbooks and its reaches ever expanding.

As a writer, I have three collections of verse in print as well as contributions in various anthologies and publications. I’m currently working on my fourth book: a collection of poetry, verse, and prose.
