On this episode, we are featuring poet and performer Siena who was one of the spoken word artists who graced the stage Live at The Linda on December 17th, 2021.

Siena is a spoken word poet and improviser from the northeast. She writes from her heart and her experience with a desire and a mission to have grown a little by the time she reaches the end of the page. Using poetry as a healing medium, Siena finds peace in putting pain to paper and taking away the shame and stigma of survivorship by speaking her story.

Dan Wilcox notes on his blog about Siena’s reading:

The poet who goes by the name Siena has been showing up on occasion at area open mics & making an impression on the audiences. She also read a couple of “pandemic poems,” one about wanting to write a poem when it is all a memory, another an ode to social workers, reflecting on the drain on herself during the year. Many of the poems I’ve heard her read previously are personal, one about saying sorry, another an angry relationship poem. & the poem she ended with looked back to December a year ago titled “Written for Each Thing We Missed.”

Thank you!
