My dispatch for Roads & Kingdoms from the Women's World Cup in Canada. This was a super assignment for a soccer fan, and I finally got to write about FIFA's "Blatter control problems." All around win. Read it here.
In April 2015, I sat down with Ellie Gordon-Moershel of the PrideHouseTO podcast to discuss sports, LGBTQ inclusion, writing, female footballers in Latin America, the boundaries of effective allyship, and Sochi 2014.
My essay, "Requiem," was included in A Family By Any Other Name, an anthology about queer relationships. Released in 2014 by TouchWood Editions, this book was well-received by audiences and critics but the blessing of my mother meant the most. This essay is about her. Read more.
Keph Senett is a masterful storyteller who delivers perfectly polished copy. An editor’s dream.

The interviews, the way you took me to the place with just a few words, almost made me cry… I remember those days when I used to be a player, a part of a team.

Just met Keph Senett. Just as funny and inappropriate in person. Awesome.

When Keph Senett writes, readers travel. Regardless of the subject matter. As a PR professional in the travel industry, I read—and write—stories on a regular basis. After a while, too many sound the same. This is where Keph differs. Her talent for observation and description surprises and beguiles. Her work stirs emotion and she clearly and concisely paints pictures. I find her style to be fresh and human and would recommend her without hesitation to anyone seeking authentic, interesting writing.

Keph Senett is a writer to watch.

I'm really pleased to announce the inclusion of my story, "At Least One Rainy Season," in Issue 9 of Proximity Magazine, from February 2016. I've been working on this piece--no joke--for five years. As much as the title alludes to the content (the time it takes to get over heartbreak), it could just as well be in reference to the time it takes to write about heartbreak. By delving into this most personal of topics, I learned that on top of the usual business of crafting a solid, relatable story, there's a lot of emotional work to be done if you wish to remain honest. In some ways I think it took five years to stop running away.
