Erica Martin is a freelance editor and a poet. Her debut poetry collection, And We Rise, was released in February 2022 from Viking Books for Young Readers/Penguin Random House. It was an ABA Indies Introduce selection, as well as an ABA Indie Next pick. She has been featured by Oprah Daily and is also one of three editors overseeing an upcoming poetry anthology that features many award-winning and New York Times best-selling authors, scheduled for publication from HarperCollins in 2024.

She enjoys making a difference in the world through political activism, reading, and writing. When she’s not reading and writing, you can find her editing, baking pies, or re-watching “The Vampire Diaries” for the millionth time.
