Theresa Davis is a name any Atlanta writer recognizes. She is the co-host of the long-running Cliterati, a regular part of the city's Art Amok Poetry Slam Team and is the 2011 Women of the World Poetry Slam Champion.

A mother, a teacher of 20 years who comes from a family of distinguished writers and artists, Davis self-published six chap books before Sibling Rivalry Press approached her about publishing her first full-length collection of poems in a book titled "After This We Go Dark." Her work gained the attention of the Atlanta City Council, which honored her with a proclamation in 2012 for her past work as well as her becoming the World Poetry Slam Champion.
