Alara Bretanne was introduced to the wonderful world of Poetry at the tender age of 15 while in grade 11 at her High School by an extraordinary and inspiring English Literature teacher from Trinidad who was one of the best teachers of her life. Encouraging her to write poetry, he also submitted one of her poems to the local newspaper for publication.  However, poetry was set aside for the world of livelihood, marriage and the birthing of two daughters. It would be 23 years later before the Muse entered her life again and another 10 years before Alara was willing to share her poetry. Alara is also a professional belly dancer, dance teacher, singer, songwriter, loves to perform in musicals and has had a couple of articles published.  She is delighted to meet other poets and writers to share her ideas and listen to theirs.
