Poetry is our perception of the world observed through a heavy heart and fervent soul.
My name is Seneca Basoalto — the founder of Allegory Creatives. I'm a lifelong writer with 27 years of creative writing experience, primarily in poetry, prose, and creative nonfiction. I also have two B.A. degrees in Creative Writing and Psychology. My writing has been professionally published all across the world, and I have multiple best-selling books for sale.
A little about me:
I was born in Connecticut, but raised all over this great big globe. I moved every couple of years throughout my whole life, and traveled for leisure while experiencing different people, cultures, and lifestyles. Although I've been *almost* everywhere, most of my time was spent in New York, South Dakota, and England. In my younger years I dedicated myself to writing, but actually strived to be an actress. I was fortunate enough to be mentored by Philip Seymour Hoffman, and learned more than I could have ever imagined about music, culture, philosophy, and life.
Like many people, I experienced lots of trauma from childhood to adulthood, and this shaped how I navigated through the world. After overcoming so many obstacles, I've known found what I am most passionate about. Poetry! But I'm also a music lover, a mother, a wife, and anyone who knows me will tell you I am never one to shy away from honesty. I'm the blunt friend! I care about our world, our culture, and our ability to be the best version of ourselves — which is different for every person.
Besides pursuing higher education, I have pursued writing in all forms. I not only volunteered at libraries and after-school recreation centers for children, but for several years I managed the Helping Arts for Substance Abuse Recovery (HASAR). This was a program I founded myself that helped substance abuse addicts in our local behavior management program learn how to utilize art and writing as therapy. This was a free service where I donated my time several days a week to work both one on one and in groups with those working to overcome their addictions through the use of therapeutic writing.
Now I am looking to help others become strong and thoughtful creative writers. I am fully and thoroughly dedicated to building strong artistry - helping you become the best writer you can be so you can meet YOUR goals and enhance your specific style. I want to aid you in finding or enhancing your voice so that your message comes across clearly to your readers.
