Amanda Korz is a graduate of Mills College and is working on certificates in technical writing and user experience & web design. Her poetry witnesses previous versions of herself and intimately digs into mental illness, disability, and witchcraft. When she isn’t writing or studying, she enjoys hiking, camping, and is just getting into backpacking. She lives in Cupertino, California.
It’s Just a Little Blood is her first book.
It's Just a Little Blood
In a commentary on the painful beauty of endurance, Amanda Korz’s debut poetry collection reimagines the conversation about menstruation. Her work fights against the frustration and misunderstanding experienced by so many. Unashamed and in protest, It’s Just a Little Blood explores secret feelings and discovers the hidden poetry that is often overlooked and dismissed.
