Using an urban motif, from blunt lit Hip Hop parties to rainy New York city streets, Angeles uses elegant yet gritty world play  –Yobachi Boswell

Judith is poetry’s babymama and printer. Residing in New York, she rides the subway and stares at people. When at home, she feeds her daughter rice and beans. He Art: Pieces of a Whole is her first self-published chapbook of poems.  Her work sleeps and works in metaphors.  It is urban and classic.  It is sincere and intimate.  It was also created with her home-based press. In 2003, Judith was selected out of 500 participants to represent  New York City in Chicago at Brave New Voices poetry competition.  She was also a finalist in Urban Word’s 2004 Slam and the winner of Russel Simmons’ Young Voices Presents Def Poetry Jam.  She is published in several independent anthologies.  Her writing has also appeared in the New York Times, the Fader, and the Daily News.  The National Book Foundation sponsored her for a writers’ retreat at Bennington College in Vermont.  Judith is also an instructor of poetry.  She has taught under several not-for-profit organizations in New York City public schools.  She is a member and volunteer for several writer communities, including Girls Write Now, Urban Word NYC, and Acentos. She is a Creative Writing major at Purchase College and an Acentos Foundation fellow.

She hopes to literally make an imprint on the online community and in print, both as a writer and a publisher. Poetry is just her gateway drug.
