Poetry. Women's Studies. With each poem in her debut collection, SYNONYMS FOR (OTHER) BODIES, Daryl Sznyter peels back one of the tender, horrific, humorous, and often magical veils through which we view ourselves, others, and the collective "We" that for better or worse, comprises the human race. The core she exposes may differ from person to person, but the unforgettable images—from a couple's tender moment at the gynecologist to a mother-daughter bonding experience at a concert—will fracture and restructure every reader's bones.
Daryl Sznyter is a content writer from Scranton, Pennsylvania. Her poetry has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and has been published in several journals, including The American Journal of Poetry, The Flexible Persona, Gravel, Phoebe, Poet Lore, WomenArts Quarterly, and others. She received her MFA in Poetry from The New School, and hopes to never stop learning.Author City: SCRANTON, PA USA
