Alexandra Baez lives in Alexandria, Virginia and works as a self-employed gardener. She was initiated into the art and science of poetry in grades four through six in a small class/workshop run by an unforgettable volunteer poet. In her teens, she participated in a number of poetry workshops, and she went on to earn a B.A. in the humanities while immersed in her college’s writing-centric culture.

Her first published poem, “Sky Drop,” appears in Lighten Up On Line’s Issue 65: March 2024. She'd love to hear from you at This email address is being protected from spambots.
