Praise For Syllables of the Briny World

Georgina Key guides us through the sweeping sensorial landscape of Bolivar Peninsula on the Texas Gulf Coast during one of the deadliest weather events of living memory. Diving deep into the hearts and minds of her characters, we celebrate their private triumphs, while mourning the profound losses that come with them. Lush and lyrical, Syllables of the Briny World is a gorgeous rendering of life, love, and loss.

E. Piotrowicz, The Currach and the Corncrake and Mother of Wild Beasts


Part mystery, part love story, part survival saga, with prose that sparkles like the Gulf itself, Georgina Key immerses us in a magical geography which exists between reality and fantasy, in the uncertain realm where ocean meets a sliver of land.

Catherine Vance, The Mountains Under Her Feet


These pages are filled with tender and often spiritual questions about life and death and the way memory shapes our present and our future. Read to the end and be devastated by the sort of profound joy and solace that literature offers to our most pressing question of how we can learn to love each other, despite our broken souls. Heartbreaking and hearthealing, this book is a tender reminder that deep love in all its crazy manifestations is all that matters.

Robin Reagler, award-winning poet of Night Is This Anyway and Into The The


Georgina Key is a master of the deeply felt novel that can crack open your heart and move you to tears. Houses, humans and animals are lost, but the wild wind and flooding waters eventually teach these wonderful characters what’s really important – the brave connections we build with each other, despite the possible heartache living in all moments of deep love.

Cynthia Williams, ‘An Angel Serves a Small Breakfast,’ Tampa Review


Syllables of the Briny World brings beautiful depth to the sense of place. From the majesty and terror of the ocean to the ethereal dimensions that overlay our very own, Georgina Key’s words guide us to the ultimate place of being – our hearts. You come away knowing that our energies leave a most beautiful imprint behind, an imprint that forever connects us to one another.

Dawn Adams Cole, It's Not the Same for Us and Drops of Cerulean


Beautifully immersive characterization and storytelling that swept me from page to page as the flood waters rose.

Lyrical Prose Workshop--Join me!

Lyrical Prose: Raise Your Writing to the Next Level by Georgina Key Two Saturdays Nov 6  &  Nov 13 from 1-4 Do you enjoy stories that immerse you in place so you can smell the sea air or that describe an object so acutely you can feel it in your hand?  Finding a poetic cadence, adding sensory detail, or distilling profound meaning in just a few select words can raise your writing to another level that sets it apart from mere plot driven storytelling. I will offer you techniques to incorporate lyrical writing into your prose that doesn’t take away from the story itself, doesn’t bog it down with unnecessary detail but instead adds depth and nuance to every aspect, including character, theme, place—the opportunities are endless! We’ll work from generative prompts in class; you may bring samples from current works in progress that you’d like to enhance with lyricism, and we’ll look at some of my favorite lyrical passages as inspiration.

Book Dedication

dedication page Nan & I at her 90th birthday I've often wondered who the people are that authors' dedicate their books to, what their relationship is and why they chose them. What a huge decision. But I knew very early on that I would dedicate Shiny Bits In Between to my grandmother (Nan) and Sheila, her eldest daughter. Both women have been muses for me, and many of my artistic endeavors are rooted in their persons. I couldn't have written this book without either of these extraordinary women. *** It was the early 1930's when my curious and fearless grandmother found an advertisement in the newspaper about a job in Brasil. It sounded like an adventure, so she applied and got the job. She boarded a boat in London and crossed the seas to Brasil where she met my grandfather. Nan had children late for the era. She was over forty when she had my uncle, her last child. She had adventures to enjoy, after all. Ethel Kenning (Nan) Nan and She
