Samantha Reynolds, Poet and Award-winning Storyteller
In 2011, Samantha Reynolds pledged to write one poem a day to try to “be present” and not miss the fleeting first year of her son’s life.
Her popular poetry blog, bentlily.com was featured in ‘O’ Magazine and has sparked a movement of people around the world to slow down and savour their lives.
When not racking up reams of poetry, she runs Echo, an award-winning storytelling agency specializing in personal memoirs and company histories. In 2005, she was named one of Vancouver’s “Top 40 Under 40.” She lives with her husband, son and daughter in Vancouver.
