Author: Samantha Wallen

Samantha Wallen is remembering she is a poet. For a long time her writing has been peripheral because she was caught in a gesture of putting others before her own work. She has now fully realized that she can shine without hurting anyone and is currently conducting a poetic investigation into economy, home, worth and value, and what it means to belong in an economic system of exclusion. She is the founder of Write In Power, and is a writing mentor and book coach that uses writing as a spiritual, healing and transformative practice to help people find the value and power of their voice and story so they can cultivate a fundamental self-trust in who they already are. She lives with her family in Mill Valley, CA where she regularly walks among and bows down to thousand year-old redwood trees to keep things in perspective.
