About our Feature:

Veda Leone and Brenda Snyder are two kindred poets who found their way to each other and the greater poetry community through the back room of “the Deuce” in Northampton, Massachusetts.

These two writers, trauma survivors, spoken word poets, and organizers mirror each other’s work across state lines. Veda is the co-founder and host of Collinsville’s Spoken Word on the Square at Downright Music in Collinsville, CT and Brenda is the founder and slam master of Witch City Poetry Slam in Salem, MA.

The two of them found inspiration, community, and each other as regular contributors on the mic at Northampton Poetry in Northampton, MA. Brenda’s work has been published on and you can find her ramblings, poems, and inspiration at; and, Veda’s first chapbook, Cellar Door, was released this January and can be found through her website
