About Sopphey

Sopphey Vance is a poet. She creates poetry with letters, words, sounds, and colors.

Sarai Oviedo, aka Sopphey Vance earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Graphic Media from the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York. During the four years of her undergraduate life, she pursued a writing career in two student publications. She covered student life and news as a writer for Reporter for a year and aided in design and literary editing for Signatures Magazine for three years.

Her undergraduate career inspired her to begin plans for a literary magazine. This led to the development of Enhance and the On Impression Network, a network of literary publications and sites that currently include: The Composers’ Laboratory, Drunk Monkeys, Enhance, Five Two One Magazine, Parody Poetry Journal, and Salon de Madame Odalys.

When not attending to On Impression business, Sopphey creates crafts for the joint Etsy shop Lady Vance & Co. with Bewitching Designers and explores and participates in the Wordsmith Studio Writing Community. She has also been a member of Occupy McAllen, and Dreams Community School. Sopphey’s writing has appeared or is to appear in Signatures Magazine, Cram Magazine, Every Night Erotica, Filthy Secret Books, and in Felt Tips Anthology edited by Tiffany Reisz.
