Michelle Seyner

From Netherlands

I was born and raised in The Hague (in the Netherlands), a city that still captures my heart. I started writing poetry when I was 13, thanks to reading Shel Silverstein's poems. The love of poetry has never left me since, and is both passion and salvation. I started writing in Dutch first, but as the years progressed, I started writing in English, too. Now I mostly write poetry in English, and rarely in Dutch. I currently live in Rotterdam with my husband and our children.

What inspires me?

People. Life. Love. Music. Reading. Friendship. and, of course - poetry.
