Hi, I'm Leora Winter.
I write about living with a disability, my holistic mental health recovery, and why hope isn’t lost even when it sometimes feels like it.
I am an artist and writer located in the Canadian maritimes.
We might be kindred spirits if you have a love for a love of tea parties, fireside reading (sometimes aloud in a dramatic voice to an audience), forest trails to small cottages, the circus (with animals who are treated kindly), poodles and kittens, the sound of church bells, handmade cotton dresses, fresh baking, and rosy winter cheeks!
THE PAPERFROST PROJECT
PAPER = the blank page, endless possibility, a space to share.
FROST = surprising beauty created in frozen darkness... Sparking in the light of dawn! Symbolizing the dazzling power of your creative self-expression
Empathy, vulnerability, honesty, and creativity are innate gifts each of us have available to us.
By recognizing that we have the power to write our own stories, and sharing our struggles and triumphs with one another, we are capable of creating a culture of empowerment leading to greater harmony and peace with ourselves, our neighbours, and nature.
MY BOOKS & SUBSTACK
I write comics and subversive fairy tales.
