About

Hello, I’m Dawn. (Siofra is pronounced ‘Shee-fruh’, but I won’t be offended if you say it differently!)

I’m part of a home-educating family based in the North-West of England. I also teach mindfulness on a very part-time basis. After a number of years immersed in story-based learning with our son, I discovered my love of writing tiny stories.

My own creative experiments have shown me the value of writing for wellbeing and healing, aswell as for the joy of play. I’ll be posting links to published pieces, plus a few reflections on my practice of imaginative writing.

(Dawn Siofra North is my pen name for fiction writing. I also write about mindfulness under my given/married name at sheilabayliss.com)
