About

IMG_0033

Hello and welcome to the virtual home of Brenda Davis Harsham, award-winning Author and Children’s poet.

Together with her fantastic husband and three story-telling children, she enjoys the unpredictability of life in New England.

Her ever-growing Publications page keeps track of where her stories and poetry may be found in the wild — anthologies and journals and magazines, oh my!

Art Prints are Available at Society6

Occasionally, her busy schedule allows time for school or club visits. Puppets shows with audience participation are her specialty. But don’t ask her to read her poetry! She loves that WAY too much. Craft of Writing workshops are available, one-day or longer as negotiated.

Her fine art photography is available for purchase on the Society6 website, including an Abstracts in Nature series.

She is not soliciting manuscripts from children at this time, but a few are available in the By&4Kids group by clicking here.

  1. Are you the same Brenda Harsham who wrote the wonderful story “My Grandmother’s Candy Dish,” from a recently published book by the Chicken Soup for the Soul that talks about mothers? Let me know please.

    All the best,
    Hamza

      • I was very impressed with your strength and willpower for not breaking your grandmother’s rule of not eating from the candy dishes, and was very proud of you for the way she trusted in you. The story teaches us an invaluable lesson in life that letting go does not mean that we don’t care about someone or something precious we love, it means finding a way to survive without it. I sent the same message to your FB page just to make sure that you receive it, please ignore it. I also posted a heart-warming story for you there, wishing you the best in your writing.

  2. Poetry is an art that started in Iraq ( masoptuamia) in the language of cuneiform . Poem writing was the beginning of poetry I have great respect for poets because they are one step above from common people. In The language of Farsi we say اگر تو می خوای که باشی خوش نويس
    می نويس می نويس تو می نويس meaning if you wants to be a great poet , keep Writing keep writing just keep writing until miracle take place. Beautiful blog

  3. You have a fascinating blog, Brenda. I love fairy stories, too, although I’ve only written a couple of longer ones. I’ve had a quick browse through a few of your pages, and will pop back and read some of your lovely stories and poems properly later on. Loved your poem on Aquileana’s blog!

      • Thank you for that lovely comment, Brenda! A Dash of Flash came about as a consequence of writing flash fiction on my blog. It probably seems a bit strange publishing a book of short pieces when I’m in the middle of writing a historical fiction trilogy. I really should learn to focus on one thing at a time! Book 3 might get finished some time this century. Lol
