It’s a mad tea party with 2 crazy sisters and a̶n̶ 1̶1̶ a 10-pound furry muse. Their mission: to publish poetry+prose with panache. The idea for a micro-press came about after sisters Aileen and Cecilia discovered their interest in upcycling and creating handmade books. They christened their new project, “Paloma,” after Aileen’s poem “La Paloma,” and old street address. After a year of crying over learning how to properly format those bloody gutters, it’s now full speed ahead!
Aileen is a San Mateo Poet Laureate Finalist. She has released a poetry collection, traje de boda, and three poetry chapbooks through Moria Books’ Locofo series. To support her poetry, 😉 she works during the day at a diplomatic mission in San Francisco.

There is no poem too short, no tale too long she cannot tackle. Unstoppable that is as long as her ink and lipstick never run dry. Truly fearless.
