About  Susan Zegarsky


Artist. Writer. Alchemist.

Wonder seeker. World traveler.

Specialist in languages.

Glows in the dark. Swings from stars.

Treasures incredible tales.

Enjoys thunderstorms immensely &

is most probably full of figs.



Artiste.  Écrivaine.  

Alchimiste.  Graphiste.

Voyager du monde et flâneuse

 Je suis adepte curieuse d'arcane.

J'aime vraiment les orages violents.

Je brille dans le noir, bioluminescente,

et je me balance sur les étoiles.

Je prise les contes incroyables.

Je suis joyeuse.

Susan Zegarsky is an award winning British-Polish writer and visual artist. First a classical pianist and graphic designer who directed her own design studio, Susan then spent life traveling the world from her home in Germany. She came to the United States to study world cultures, remained as a language specialist, and now writes and paints full time from her new studio. 

Her work as a writer and artist reflects her exploration of the interactions between consciousness, nature and the metaphysical, and she delves into the psychological effects of immigration, isolation, abuse and grief. A student of hermetics, she is an aficionado of horror, cabinets of curiosity, languages living and dead, and the occult and arcane. 

Susan writes fiction and poetry in French, English and Arabic. She is the author of the novel, The Vuylk and the poetry collection Exsanguinarium. Her poetry has been featured in Santa Clara Review, Hyacinth Review, Fahmidan, Prismatica, Coffin Bell Journal, The Slake, Grim & Gilded, Cauldron Anthology, Quail Bell Magazine, Ink in Thirds, Lynx, The Horror Magazine, Autumn Sky, and she always has new work forthcoming in additional literary journals. 

Susan hopes to encourage the exploration of forms of poetry like the ghazal, gogyohka, and sijo. She has also written under a pen name.

Her work can be found on her website www.zegarsky.com and she is @ouisuzette on social media.
