Stephanie A.W. Martin is a featured poetess on Untwine.Me’s ‘100 Incredible Instapoets of 2018’ and she shares her raw and emotionally charged writings @stephanieawmartin on instagram. A mental health advocate, her poetry and prose pieces are often an attempt to seek answers or to promote awareness about the stigma associated with mental illness. The pain and suffering experienced by those who are left out because of society’s flawed structures and standards, are highlighted brilliantly by this intelligent writer and poetess. We deeply admire and respect her ability to give voice to issues that need careful consideration and our time. Mental health awareness is not the only theme she covers on her page; there’s life, love, nature, seduction and much more to explore in terms of themes, when you read her.
