Hello! My name is Stacia and I’m a reader, star wisher, light chaser, and curious mind at large. I am the founder and principal writer at I Hope This Message Finds You Well. My work has been published in the Bellevue Literary Review and Beltway Poetry Quarterly, award-winning journals focused on the human experience, health and healing, to name a few.
As a young girl, I had the strangest notion that I was made – not of organs, cells, and muscles, but – of words. Everything I surveyed was with a sense of exhilaration and of creative possession. As such, I never left home without the essentials: pen, paper, and camera. Above all, I am a storyteller.
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 message that is not mine – impartially and empathically.
As you wish, share the thoughts, emotions, and memories that you struggle to translate to the page. I promise to write that your reader – from the first letter to the last – feels your heart in your words.
I hope this message finds you well,
