Sapha Burnell is a Norwegian-Canadian chilling in the Pacific West Coast, and is on the National Council of The Writers' Union of Canada (2016-2019). Surrounded by artists & scientists, she bridges the gap between Left and Right brains on a daily basis. She yanked a grab-bag of English/Francophone Lit, Theatre, Film and Chemistry at Trinity Western University, then played Life-Hooky and volunteered in West Africa. Speculative Fiction, & Poetry is her jam, written out of Pitt Meadows, BC, when she's not travelling.

Usurper Kings (Vræyda Literary) is Sapha's first full length poetry collection and has been called 'a riot of expression' and 'jaw-droppingly beautiful'.

My mentor taught discipline by training the brain to sequence ideas and work on anything else despite blocks. She'd give us a series of character studies, setting & plot studies to complete. There's always something to go over and work through, which usually lead me back to the block from another angle. (less)

I love watching peoples' faces as they read my material and come to their own thoughts and conclusions. Poetry's so emotional & heteroglossic, it's no end of fun to hear interpretations and their views on an author's work. It's also a fantastic way of checking the pulse of a work and see how it's developed in a reader's eyes. (less)

Selected Writings by Hildegard of Bingen
“The dark membrane contained also a dark fire of such horror that I was unable to perceive it properly. The horror buffeted the dark membrane with a massive impact of sounds and storms and sharp stones great and small.2 Whenever the noise arose it set in motion the layer of bright fire, winds and air, thus causing bolts of lightning to presage the sounds of thunder; for the fiery energy senses the first agitations of the thunder within it.”
Hildegard of Bingen
Selected Writings by Hildegard of Bingen
“But when the sun drops closer to the earth, the cold of the earth runs to it from the water and causes all green things to dry up. And because the sun has dropped closer to the earth, the days are short, and it is winter.”
Hildegard of Bingen
