Reviews

"Amanda Chiado's poem 'Honey in Fur' builds itself towards a crescendo of word images that take artfully unexpected snapshots of sexual desire.


-Michael Alexander Chaney, Fugitive Vision


"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 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." 

 -Laura Garrison, Jersey Devil Press
