Profile Information

Abigail Kloss-Aycardi is author of the free verse poetry collections Love Is An Orchid and Deep Within Creative Minds published by Star Image Publishing, and the self-published collection Out of Reach - A Poet in Permafrost.

Abigail began writing poetry at the age of seven.  Her first poetry compilation Love Is An Orchid, was published by Star Image Publishing in 2006 when twenty year-old Abigail was trying to make some pocket money for a trip to Europe.  Though that trip was ultimately cancelled, she promoted the book and worked on her next release, Deep Within Creative Minds which was published in late 2006.

When her publisher went into retirement, Abigail searched for another way to publish her next books.  She stumbled upon a blog by David Gaughran "Let's Get Digital" in 2011.  After reading his book, she realized she could publish her books on her own and began the process that ended with the release of Out of Reach - A Poet in Permafrost in PDF format in December of 2011.  Shortly thereafter, Abigail began work on the hard copy publication of Out of Reach.  On June 10th 2012, Out of Reach became available on LuLu.com.

Abigail is creator of the Young Poets Portal, a blog to encourage young poets by sharing writing prompts, helpful writing links, links to read poetry, poetry apps and suggestions for parents who want to further their childrens' writing endeavors.
