I have been writing for many years, and it forms a core part of who I am. I have several published poems. I have my MA in CW & English Lit and I am currently editing my first manuscript, and writing my second. These are both in poetry, my most chosen medium. I also write short first person essays, and blog stories. I am honoured and grateful that you are here, and I hope you enjoy some of my words.

Write With Me
Are you also dreaming of writing, or are you already a writer or poet or storyteller yourself? It is incredible to be part of a writing community, to support and encourage one another, and share our writing energy. I also have courses and workshops to offer you, and a writing Facebook Page where I post regularly writing inspiration.
Power of Voice
“I believe that everyone deserves to have a voice. I believe that no one voice matters any more than any other voice. I believe that we all have a story to tell, that everyone’s story matters, and that storytelling is a way to find hope and healing from trauma, when done in the right context with the right audience, and in a trauma-informed space. There is courage in our words, there is hope. Writing is transcendent and transformational. I hope that if it is your dream to write, have a voice, and tell your story, that you will find a safe, encouraging place to do so. I also hope that this website and community can be one of those places for you. — Debra
