Kay B. Day
freelance correspondent, author, speaker


My collection A Poetry Break was nominated for Book of the Year, Poetry, in 2005 by the
Southeastern Independent Booksellers Association. This collection also won top prize for
poetry in 2004 from Florida Writers Association. My nonfiction book Killing Earl won 2nd place
in Florida's National League of American Pen Women competition. Other awards include the
ByLine Literary Award for poetry and the Carrie Allen McCray Award for poetry. I've won a
number of awards, but the best recognition of all comes from the reader who writes to tell me
he or she is touched by my words.


I've had the pleasure of presenting talks and workshops to groups like the Florida Council of
Teachers of English, the Southeastern Writers Association, Girlfriends' Weekend and the
Southeastern Booksellers' Trade Show.
I've read my poetry to groups like Jacksonville's American Association of University Women
and the BookIsland Festival.
