Kyla Houbolt (@luaz_poet) has no academic credentials but grew up in a household saturated with poetry and music. This nourished her creativity. She wrote poems early and often, rarely seeking publication until 2019, when she joined Twitter. She was nominated for both Pushcart and Best of the Net, and published in a large number of online journals. She has also shared poetry as the Greenway Poet, in her local walking park, posting poems up on trees. Her first chapbook, Dawn’s Fool, was published in March 2020, and her second chapbook, Tuned, in November 2020.
