About Me

I'm Daryl

I'm a writer, digital marketing nerd, SEO ninja, beauty addict, and lover of all things literary, spooky, psychology-driven, and socially conscious.

Poetry = LIFE. I am a true believer that everyone is capable of understanding and falling in love with poetry. If poetry makes your head throb, don't give up; you just haven't found a poet that resonates with you yet!

I love meeting new people and learning new things! If you'd ever like to chat, feel free to reach out. If you have any literary, film, fashion, blog, or life suggestions, those are always welcome, too.


My Poetry Book

My debut collection of poetry, Synonyms for (OTHER) Bodies, was published by NYQ Books in 2018 and is available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound, and elsewhere.


My Writing

My writing has been featured in a variety of publications, ranging from poetry journals and academic publications to lifestyle magazines and influencer blogs.



If you'd like to book me for a poetry reading or event, you can fill out a contact form and I'll get back to you sooner than you'd expect.



Topics range from books and film to politics, feminism, beauty, psychology, and local businesses. If you want to know what inspires me (or infuriates me), check it out and subscribe.

About Synonyms for
(OTHER) Bodies

Poetry. Women's Studies. Feminism.

"With each poem in her debut collection, Synonyms for (OTHER) Bodies, Daryl Sznyter peels back one of the tender, horrific, humorous, and often magical veils through which we view ourselves, others, and the collective "We" that for better or worse, comprises the human race. Oscillating between feminist and humanist, Sznyter's words sing both anthem and psalm. Her unforgettable images - from acouple's tender moment at the gynecologist to a mother-daughter bonding experience at a concert - will slam your head against the wall only to step back and nurture the wound."
