About Sandra Sealy

Sandra Sealy aka “Seawoman” is the Creator of Seawoman’s Caribbean Writing Opps.

Sandra Sealy – Profile

Fondly referred to in his “Bird Rising” (Words Need Love Too-House of Nehesi Publishers) by Kamau Brathwaite as “Princess of Chichén Itzá”, Sandra Sealy is above all a writer. She believes this leads to many evolutions – performance poet, business communications consultant, blogger and multi-award-winning writer of poetry, short stories, children’s stories and plays. She possesses a wealth of experience in cultural administration and freelance writing/editing, which lead to her position of Copywriter from 2013 with Terra Caribbean – one of the leading real estate firms in the Caribbean. 

She describes herself as “a Canadian-Barbadian raised writer clutching an English birth certificate.”

Her background in public relations and marketing combined with her strong creative writing skills have ably prepared her as a freelance writer/ editor. Sandra covers a number of niches like copy for brochures and websites, advertorials, restaurant and book reviews, press releases, feature and cover stories, pictorial text and more.

Sandra, whose prose has been shortlisted for the prestigious Small Axe Literary Competition, has work which has been widely anthologised internationally. Some of her writing credits include: Tongues Of The Ocean (Bahamas online) CALABASH: A Journal of Caribbean Arts & Letters (USA) ; Arts Etc (Barbados); WomanSpeak;(Her Circle Ezine.com; Caribbean Writing Today (ezine); POUI: The Cave Hill Literary Annual of the University of the West Indies (Barbados); Wedding Guide Barbados; SHE Caribbean Magazine (St. Lucia); Urban Entertainment (USA); In Paradise Magazine:Barbados – with Rihanna as the cover (Writer/Editor) and the Nation Newspaper (Barbados).

“Aunty Sandra’s” work with children lead to her being the first Poetry Editor (Adults and Kids) with the online Caribbean children’s literature magazine Anansesem created by Summer Edward.

Among her publishing credits are the travel writing/exclusive coverage of the concert of Grammy-winning soul artist Lauren Hill in Trinidad for the Nation Newspaper; exclusive coverage (and public relations co-ordination) of the glamorous society wedding of Barbados business magnate Ralph “Bizzy” Williams and his bride Shelly.

Some performances on various stages and connections in the Barbadian literary world led to her film screen supporting role in the breakout, Bajan dramatic comedy “Payday” 2013 (Bajans In Motion Inc) – written by Shakirah Bourne and directed by Selwyne Browne. The first of Payday movies (meant to be a trilogy) now available on DVD, was viewed in Cuba, Trinidad, Toronto, New York and held over by popular demand in Barbados. Sandra’s supporting role is Mrs. Taylor, mother to one of the two main characters. “Next Payday” was just shot in Summer 2014.

Her dèbut spoken-word CD single “Beauty Of The Bald Head: The Jazzy Spoken-Word Single” (Butterfly Creative Productions/ Kolaiah Studios 2003) which was favourably reviewed in Ejazznews.com, became an award-winning music video directed by Dr. Gladstone Yearwood.

She actively maintains Seawoman’s Caribbean Writing Opps (award-winning website dedicated to assisting international writers); Seawoman’s Caribbean Blogspot (writing blog); and the popular Facebook group Caribbean Writers.
