Amanda Lucinda


Amanda Lucinda is a thirty-something graduate student living in the Sunshine State. The fuel for her poetry content comes from personal heartbreak, being the child of immigrants, battling autoimmune conditions, and having a "Navy brat" upbringing.

With a history of talking before she could walk, and reading before she was out of diapers, she was destined to share her musings with the masses.

  • Brief are the Stories II on Oct. 26, 2019

    Torn by the thorn is a powerful piece! Thanks for sharing your work for free.
  • From Where I Stand on Dec. 29, 2019

    “Behind the Mask” was extremely relatable. All of us can recall trying to find ourselves in our youths. Unfortunately, the poems do not seem to have a common theme. The collection reads more like a chapbook than a finished product. Also, I am not certain of the author’s intent. Are the poems just recollections of the poet’s life, messages of gratitude, or advice for the reader? There are poems about loss, grief, and nature. I look forward to reading more powerful pieces like “Change of Address” and “Signed, Your Son” in Zimmermann’s future works.
  • How I Got Over on Dec. 29, 2019

    Raunchy, but written with restraint. The author has an ability to keep the reader guessing and on the edge of their seat. I also enjoyed the vivid scenery details and imagery. An explosive, cheeky ending. I recommend this poem for the 18+ crowd.
