Philicia Montgomery – Poetry

My name is Philicia Montgomery, I am from Jamaica Queens NY, and I am currently attending Buffalo State College for my M.A. in English. I have been published in Vine Leaves Literary Journal, Literary Juice, Elm Leaves: A Magazine of the Arts, and The Nickel City Review. Writing has always been the only thing that gives me butterflies. When I get inspired on the train or the bus or in class staring into space, the thought of writing that story or poem makes me all giddy.
