Interviews & Review

"Amanda Chiado is a force to be reckoned with. In her poems you might find zombies, guns and knives, a certain sexiness and edge, even Houdini. You never really know what to expect in a Chiado poem, except that you'll be surprised and unsettled."

-Cathy Barber, Poet & Humorist


Amanda Chiado, Sequestrum Literature and Art, 2018

Poet. W​riter. Teacher. Arts Advocate.


"Amanda Chiado has an uncanny ability to land on the word that is both fitting and unexpected. With their vivid sensory details and subtle musicality, her poems demonstrate a serious attention to craft while still feeling tremendously alive."
