More about this CrowdRaise

Hi, I'm Beverly Tan.

I am a filmmaker and a writer. I want to change the world one poem at a time. I want to write things that are relatable because poetry is what helped heal my heart of many things. I hope to help others feel and heal with my work. I just self-published my first poetry book "Water in a Wineglass" and I want to know what you think.

I am in the words I leave behind, the annotations scribbled in margins
I am from the desire for red-blooded life and the hunger for success, fueled only by passion.

I come from the chances I take, the hopes that have been smashed like diamonds on diamond, the risks that burn the dreams into the shadows that fade with dawn's purple glow.

I do not come from the numbers on the scale, the tiger stripes on my hips, or the words that once burned. Those can't solely define me.

"Water in a Wineglass" Launches on Amazon

31st of March 2017

Water in a Wineglass is a love letter. It plays a song from the heartstrings of the author's mind and wraps around timeless words we've heard at some point or another. I love you, I don't, and everything in between. It's the kissing of souls and the ripping of hearts blended into the eye of a hurricane.

I'd love to share my poetry with you.
