Bruised Bluebird

Bruised Bluebird is Shanel Hewitt's first collection

of poetry and prose; first published on 2/3/23 and

has since been revised.

The anthology explores the sharp and vulnerable

process of Heartache, Healing and Love. Navigating

the ups and downs of emotions like grief, loss, and

acceptance; Bruised Bluebird depicts how healing is

not linear and most times a tumultuous journey.

Still, sorrow can create beautiful things.

May this collection serve as a reminder of that.

About the Author

Shanel Hewitt is a Belizean Canadian writer and poet; currently residing in Vancouver, BC. Her love for writing developed at age 11 when she read “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe. It wasn’t until the age of 15 that she found a deep love for poetry through the likes of Charles Bukowski, Sylvia Plath and Friedrich Nietzsche.

Drawing influences from many poets and philosophers alike. Shanel has adopted a similar style of writing; Curious by nature, Shanel writes about everything, but her favourite topics are the one's she calls “the big feels!” Existence, Grief, self-Love, Growth, and Healing of the inner child.

Shanel is a mother to a 6-year-old boy, who she says inspires her to see the magic in the mundane.

In 2023 she released her first collection of poetry and prose, Bruised Bluebird, originally titled “When A Bruised Bluebird Sings.” It captivates a raw look at healing from heartbreak and grief while returning home to oneself.
