Sarah Scott

Profile: One of the characteristics of writers on ReadThisPlease---they are multi-talented, and Sarah Scott exemplifies this attribute. A mom, student, writer, dramatic poet, photographer, soap maker, painter, literary adjudicator, winner of the Louse McColl Creative Writing Scholarship for Fiction----Sweet, as we affectionately call her, is a deeply passionate and focused individual. Her spark's an odd glow; she sees the subtleties of life intensely. Her experience on the planet has been dynamic and peppered with moments of observation and reflection. These impressions percolate in her writing. She's new and she's got that heartache of the Romantic school, but Sarah Scott is real. Her words are a weave of dichotomy, splicing the innately sublime with a mix of in-the-day application. People have woes and joys; Sarah expresses them. Now.ReadThisPlease is a short form project---daily columns, a few articles, glimpses, and not constructed with the same preparation as our periodical. Yet, Sarah has politely acquiesced to the challenge of our in-the-box style---we're including bits of her prose and observation. Now we all get a chance to read as she wanders in words, through brambles of the heart and bliss of the senses. Every once in a while you meet a writer who can take a dewy-eyed glint and impale it on the page, then tease out the sentiment. So we introduce Sarah Scott, a regular contributor of ReadThisPlease, who has come over to the Now.
