In early 2016 I was invited to a queer-friendly surf retreat in Florianopolis, Brazil, where I learned that the healing power of sport is not the sole domain of team endeavors, and that nobody looks good in a wet suit. In addition to stories in GOOD Magazine, Eat Drink Travel, and VICE Sports, I placed two stories--one on lesbian travel in Rio and the other about Brazil EcoJourneys' LGBT surf camp--in the September/October 2016 issue of Curve Magazine.
Those familiar with my narrative writing know I like to crack wise, but I'm much less confident finding publication venues for this kind of writing. I was super excited when this humor piece ran in the Globe & Mail just before Valentine's Day, 2016. Read it here.
Keph Senett is a masterful storyteller who delivers perfectly polished copy. An editor’s dream.
- Bruce Gillespie, Editor | A Family By Any Other Name
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.
- Olga Trujillo, Editor | Diosas Olímpicas
Just met Keph Senett. Just as funny and inappropriate in person. Awesome.
- Jeff Bartlett, Media and PR Specialist | Tourism Jasper
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.
