Sarah Saint Anne

I wrote my first poem by accident when I was 10 years old and struggling with PTSD, depression, and anxiety. From that fateful day forward, I continued to write daily—sometimes completing ten or more poems, and usually at least one or two songs. I have had a few life-related hiatuses, and have only just begun to submit my work for publication. So far, I have had two pieces published, and I'm putting together pieces to submit for the big July-August push.

I would love to get to know local writers of all types and genres, as well as possibly meet up to discuss and/or get feedback on our work from a safe group of people.

I am a writer of poetry, essays, memoirs, and short stories. I've filled journals, notebooks, and multiple odd scraps of paper with my poetry and prose throughout my life. I'm still trying to type it all into my laptop! I am also a teacher of English grammar, literature, and composition for twenty-three years now. I guide students in the study, appreciation, and creation of various literary genres, including poetry, essays, short story, and flash fiction--just to name a few.  Dance, choreography, and the overall creative process are dear to me, for long before I held a magnetic marker to a flat-panel screen in front of a classroom I'd gripped the ballet barre and called out, "...a 5,6,7,8!" in countless dance studios.  First and foremost, however, I write. I think it's time to shine some light on it.  I want to share ideas, hone my skills, inspire, and be inspired. I want to write.
