Alice Fawn is bursting with creative talent from her poetry, singing songwriting, writing, and even teaching yoga. Alice carries out her day in an art form with grace. She heals your body, mind, and soul through all of her creative work. Let’s dive into some of her many projects now.
How would you describe ‘Soft Fairytales’ in one sentence?
The fairytales I’ve written are dreamy, soft and empowering. They are pleasant magical journeys wherein the message is always the same: You have a purpose. Powerful beauty is already within you . Kindness and compassion matter.
This is unconventional for a fairytale. Classically, they are generally a bit dark and dramatic.
How do you think you’ve evolved creatively?
I am open to whatever expression wants to flow through next. I had no idea that I’d be writing poetry, fairytales, or even children’s books! I thought I was just a singer who made up lyrics. If we take away labels and expectations, we can be surprised at what comes out!

What do you hope readers will take away from your children’s book, Ginny’s Cloud?
I hope readers delight in the whimsy of the story. I aim to inspire children to have heart based connections with others.
What is your background in spirituality & yoga? how does it influence poetry/ creative process?
I am a yoga teacher and healer, and I tune in every morning with a brief meditation. This helps me to stay elevated and more calm throughout my day. The quieter my mind, the richer the ideas! I am open to receive. Sometimes a phrase will drift into my consciousness seemingly out of nowhere. I believe this can only happen when I am still.
Why is writing important to you?
Its nice to have a solitary creative outlet. It often feels like a form of meditation. I hope to uplift and empower people through my work.

When did you start singing? How did you make the jump to starting this new project?
I remember singing and humming as a child. In a rock band, it’s hard to sing pretty the whole time, and lyrics get lost. My current project, Aurora Aura , came about because I realized that my lyrics were important, and the ethereal quality of my voice needed to be heard. Aurora Aura has guitar looping by Dustin Sebes and melody/lyrics by me.
