Welcome to So Nadine Writes, home base for my creative endeavors.
A little curated slice of life through poetry, spoken word, journals, and essays. I hope to cultivate a single outlet to share my writing projects and experiment with building a foundation for future creative endeavors.
My poetry has been published in the Creative Colloquy’s online journal, Pacific Lutheran University’s 2019 edition of Saxifrage, won an award in Pierce College’s 2017 and 2018 editions of the Student Literary Arts Magazine, as well as has been featured in the Maudlin House Writers of the Week segment. I also often perform at open mics and slams both internationally, such as at the Amman Poetry Slam in Amman, Jordan, and have been featured locally, by the Creative Colloquy, as well!
Poetry provides the perfect medium to articulate my thoughts, beliefs, and values and as such, this site serves as an extension of myself. I write both traditional and “spoken word” style poetry, as well as informal blog-style journals, to consolidate the experiences from this part of my life. Check out my first journal, Origin Story, for a little bit more on that.
I am always looking out for new ways to get involved with new writing scenes locally as well as new places to submit to– if you have any suggestions, please get in touch!
I hope you enjoy digging around my digital notebook here; I’m sure there will be something for everyone.
