Ali Trotta is a poet, editor, dreamer, word–nerd, and unapologetic coffee addict. Her poetry has appeared in Uncanny and Cicada magazines. She writes television show reviews for Blastoff Comics. These have included Agent Carter, The Flash, and Supergirl. Additionally, for Blastoff, she has written some personal essays. Ali’s always scribbling on napkins, looking for magic in the world, or singing along to songs at the grocery store. When she isn’t word–wrangling, she’s cooking, baking, hugging an animal, or pretending to be a mermaid. She’s on Twitter as @alwayscoffee, and you can also read her blog at alwayscoffee.wordpress.com. One of her past Uncanny poems was a Rhysling Award nominee.
