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.

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.
