Introducing NEW Poetry & Art Editor

Candice Louisa Daquin

We are excited to introduce you to our new Poetry & Art Editor, whom Susmita had first met when she submitted to Indie Blue(e) Publishing’s The Kali Project. Susmita had gained further acquaintance via another Indie Blu(e) Publishing Project: Through the Looking Glass Anthology. It was while working with Candice on The Pine Cone Review’s latest venture, Be Proud With Pride: Being Queer, that the thought of further collaborations were nourished. As a result of that, Candice is now a part of the team here. A talented author and editor, Candice is also a practicing psychotherapist.

Candice Louisa Daquin's poetic work takes its form from the confessional women poets of the 19th and 20th century as well as queer authors writing from the 1950's onward. Her career(s) teaching critical thinking and practicing as a psychotherapist have heavily influenced her work, with explored key themes including, sexual-dysfunction, sexual-abuse, parental-relationships, mental illness and queer-identity. Daquin's work is also significantly imprinted by Audre Lorde, Françoise Sagan, Angela Carter, activist Egyptian physician Nawal El Saadawi, Navdanya seed bank creator/campaigner Vandana Shiva, Pablo Neruda, Israeli PM Golda Mier, Toni Morrison and feminist philosophers bell hooks, Hélène Cixous and Luce Irigaray.
