Jenna Dayle is a poet, codependency & relationship writer, artist and tarot reader living, breathing and creating in the beautiful Okanagan Valley region of British Columbia, Canada. After publishing her first poetry collection, In This Season, she spent 2 years falling in love, publishing & unpublishing her second book, White Wave of The Valley (because there was more missing... a feeling frustratingly unexplainable), exploring her intuition and senses, learning astrology and human design and finding her self-trust as a tarot reader. In early 2021, an idea began to form for her - a way to take the inspiration of a writer on social media and translate it into a more intimate experience. Seeing how learning pieces of their astrology and human design was helping her private clients soften around codependency, find peace and hope for their relationship with self & others, and open up willingness to start designing a life they felt sensual and alive in, Jenna pressed on and allowed this to expand the idea of sending direct and personal poems directly to her readers through her intimate postcards subscription service. She is also currently writing her next poetry collection.
