Leila A. Fortier is a writer, artist, poet, and photographer currently residing on the remote island of Okinawa Japan. Her poetry is known to be a unique hybrid form in which her words are specially crafted into visual design, often superimposed over her own multi-medium forms of art, photography, and spoken accompaniment, lending to the full-bodied expression and intensity of each piece.
Her work has been published in dozens of literary magazines, journals, and reviews both in print and online. She has appeared in several books, anthologies, and other freelance publications including Treasured Poets of America, Satiated Sunrise, and A World of Love: Voices for Carmen. She is also the author of Metanoia’s Revelation through iUniverse.
