About Me

I write poetry and short stories and I am working on my first novel. I also write a humor blog on another site. I have been published in poetry forums and other venues.

Sylvia Gardner is my pen name. I recently adopted it in order to allow myself more freedom in my writing, and to allow me to expand into multiple genres. The words flow more smoothly when I can write to everybody who wishes to read me without a preconceived notion of who I am and what I “should” be writing.  It allows me the ultimate in artistic freedom.

I write about many topics, including love, family and relationships.  I also write about darker life experiences including things like domestic abuse, sexual abuse, trauma, and living with PTSD.

I am working on transferring my works from pad/paper and my previous site to this one in order to have them in one place.

I hope you enjoy what you read, or that it touches you in some way.  And, if it does, by all means, please let me know.

Thank you for joining me on this journey.

    • I am quite new to WordPress and just learning my way around. I’ve updated my “About Me” (I didn’t realize it was not showing up here) Thank you for stopping by and for reading me!

      • How prompt! I love how open you’ve been about your MH issues – and I can totally relate to you on the pen name business: there’s a wonderful freedom in getting your writing out there for the world to see. I’m sure your journey’s going to be a brilliant one – and I wish you all the luck in the world with it! x
