Of Ami Kaye’s work, Cin Hochman, Editor-in-Chief, First Literary Review-East states, “Ami combines the best of all possible traits: she is a brilliant poet, storyteller, editor, and publisher, and is the type of empathetic friend you want to have along to share all things literary AND life-affirming. In addition to her love of craft and intuitiveness for quality, she demonstrates a tremendous respect for her fellow poets. And now Ami has made the logical leap into the small press world, and as someone who possesses several of Glass Lyre’s maiden publications, I can vouch for the fact that all of Ami’s elegance, refinement, goodness, and goodwill have been brought to bear in these beautiful books. And now I am thrilled that THE WRITE STEP has discovered her too.”

The Write Step with RJ Jeffreys is a "live" radio interview show focused primarily on the lead players in the Arts and Letters who are authors, poets, writers, book publishers, and those who create works of art in film, fine art, music and other creative disciplines.
