Sarah-Dena Harnum

I am a 52 year old woman, I am an emerging poet and writer who began my creative journey last year with the introduction of my blog, https://sarahsmusings322956272.wordpress.com. My early years were spent in New Harbour, Trinity Bay, till the age of 20. I moved to St. John’s, in 1987, to pursue education and later work in Hotel Management, Tourism and Food Service.

In 1995, I moved back to my hometown and married, raised a family and joined the Canadian Forces Reserves as a Naval Officer.  After a divorce a few years ago, I came out as more than straight.  Last year, in 2018, I emerged into myself as a transgender woman and began my journey to authenticity.  This year I moved back to St John’s, where I work full time and attend Memorial University. I study Sociology and psychology with an aim to achieve a Masters in Counseling.

My preferred poetic style is open and free form, where each reader gets a different mental image and impression of the work. I have more than 50 poems written at the time of this posting. I also enjoy writing short stories and flash fiction.  I have two short books written, at the time of this submission, and am in search of a publisher.

From a state of lifelong learning, I constantly seek to learn and grow as a writer, and as a person.
