Hello! My name is Stacia and I’m a reader, writer, star wisher, light chaser, and curious mind at large. I’ve been published in the Bellevue Literary Review, a journal focused on the human experience, health and healing, and the Beltway Poetry Quarterly, an award-winning literary journal that showcases the literary community in Washington, D.C. and the surrounding Mid-Atlantic region, to name a few.

As a young girl, I had the strangest notion that the fundamental difference between myself and everyone else was that half of me was made – not of organs, cells, and muscles, but – of words. Premature, I thought language filled the void left by my forfeiting Time’s work. Everything I surveyed was with a sense of exhilaration and of creative possession, and I never left home without the essentials: pen, paper, and camera. I am more a storyteller than anything else.

After years reading for degrees in Comparative Literature, Creative Writing, Literary Journalism, and Film Production, a pattern emerged. Like Borges’ Shakespeare, my “singular happiness” is borne from truly connecting with others and expressing the story that is not mine – impartially and empathically.

As you wish, share with me the thoughts, emotions, and memories that you struggle to distil. I promise to write so that your reader – from the first letter to the last – will feel your heart in your words.

I hope this message finds you well,

Stacia
