author of fiction & poetry

Kayla King is an author of fiction and poetry. Her debut micro-collection of poetry, These Are the Women We Write Aboutis published by The Poetry Annals.

Since receiving her MFA, she's set her sights on publishing the novel conceptualized during her graduate studies. Now in the query trenches with her YA speculative novel about dreams, she is seeking representation, and dreaming bigger than ever.


These Are the Women We Write About

Kayla King’s These Are the Women We Write About is both dreamlike and mythic. Drawing on the intricate stories of Greco-Roman mythology, her words trace the edges of the celestial and interrogate the boundaries between the known and unknown.

King writes with fluid and graceful language, crafting images both fragile and poignant. Her examination, through poetry, of the female narrative in myth is striking and beautiful in equal measure.
