“Poet Christine Ray’s first printed collection of poetry, Composition of a Woman (Sudden Denouement Press, 2018) is a striking, fearless foray into the psyche of womanhood, both highly relatable and intensely personal for female readers and achingly candid and fascinating for male.”

Christine E. Ray is a writer and freelance editor who lives outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Her writing has been featured in SpillWords, fēlan poetry & visual zine, Nicholas Gagnier’s book ‘Swear to Me’ (2017), and will appear in his upcoming collection, “All the Lonely People.”

An avid writer of fiction and poetry in her teens and 20’s, Ray returned to creative writing after a long hiatus in 2016 when she launched her blog Brave and Reckless.  Although she primarily considers herself a poet, she is best known on WordPress for her well-regarded  Series for New Bloggers, which earned a Discover designation by the WordPress Editorial Staff.

She served as primary  editor of ‘Anthology Volume I: Writings from the Sudden Denouement Literary Collective’ and ‘A Sparrow Stirs its Wings’ by Rachel Finch.

Ray is currently working on her second book of poetry to be released later in 2018, ‘The Myths of Girlhood’.
