Hello! As you may have guessed, I’m Sarah Porwoll and you’ve landed on my little corner of the web. This is where I put my thoughts, ideas and feelings out into the world in the form of poems, short stories and even my dreams.
Why (you may wonder) do I put them out into the world?
…Because doing this challenges me to actually pull them off the notes section of my phone, finish them, and move on to new thoughts and feelings.
…Because they matter to me, which means, they may matter to other people (like you!) too.
By day I work in advertising and brand development, which is to say I make a living out of taking a complex message, idea or offering and distilling it down to a 15 second video, social media post, or even just the front panel of a package you see at a store. Finding a way to connect “it” (whatever “it” may be) to people’s lives is where the magic happens.
I get excited about creating something that allows a person feel and understand something they wouldn’t have connected to before. I aim to do this with my writing as well.
I currently split time between Brooklyn, NY and our home in the Catskill mountains. Originally from Atlanta, GA, I moved to New York City in 2005 and haven’t looked back since (sorry, Mom & Dad!)
Thanks for dropping by!
