120My name is Saelis.

I love art, music, video games, and writing.  Poetry allows me to process the things I can’t verbalize.

A timeline of my writing journey:

  • 2014: My poem “Cardinal” was published in Central Texas College’s Byways Journal of Arts and Letters
  • 2015: “Myth,” “Anxious,” and “Cielo” were published in the same journal, with “Anxious” winning the second place writing award
  • March 2015: Invited to present “Anxious” at Central Texas College’s “Women Who Rock” event, in honor of Women’s History Month
  • Spring 2017: Black Box poet at Texas A&M University (see page 4 of this newsletter for an interview about my experience)
