Author Samira Vivette Discusses Her Latest Book Graffiti Graveyard And The Dynamic Of The Online Space

Meet author Samira Vivette: the writer with an artistic flare for exploring and sparking conversation surrounding a plethora of themes—some relatable, some controversial.

Her writing to date shared millions of times online, she’s definitely a name to watch. Vivette takes a bold approach to her writing, not shying away from emotion (perceivingly negative or not) and penning feelings about heartbreak, love, and other warm emotions as well as those many of us might feel hesitant to speak about.

With some online pieces sparking debate in the past, this hasn’t deterred the author from writing about what’s on her mind and topics she believes should be discussed. “I’ve been sharing my works online for a few years now, but there was a period of time when I consecutively shared more intense pieces that displayed undertones of anger and other emotions that most of us try to come to terms with on our journeys. These writings stirred some unpleasant dialogue in my comment sections. I think for some, it can be confronting and triggering to read a piece that isn’t sunshine and rainbows. Some people take it personally and think I am writing about them or they are being attacked, but this is not the case at all. I write to explore the depths and nuances of all experiences. It’s important to give a voice to the other side which involves less socially accepted displays of emotions such as rage, spite, and resentment.” She goes on to say, “Every emotion has its place in a person’s healing journey, and life in general. We all feel the highs and the lows, and I write what calls me at the time. I believe ‘negative’ emotions are useful in their own right and allow for self-reflection and motivation. Although, it’s all about balance and discernment—ensuring they don’t eventually become harmful to your mindset and hinder your ability to heal.”

Her latest addition to a growing collection, Graffiti Graveyard is a continuation of her previous release, Grayscale, drawing a darker curtain over her writing—incorporating elements of horror poetry and darkness while remaining relatable and captivating. This poetry and prose collection paints the cycles of passion and infatuation, grief, self-destruction, chaos, and rebirth with an eerily haunting atmospheric brush. The blurb reading, “Herein lies a paper tomb of mess void of regret: a symbolic space where havoc persists and normality is laid to rest” the reader is welcomed into a world of curiosity and relatability.

“I’m really excited about my latest release because I feel my books have evolved with me. My writing style and general artistic direction has matured and cemented into what it is today and the growth I’ve undergone as a writer over the years has been quite substantial. I look back on my first few books through an almost unrecognizable lens,” Vivette says. “When I first began sharing my poetry publicly, I had this preconceived idea of what it should be or what it was meant to look like. I was under a limiting impression that poetry had to be gentle, and although a majority of it is gentle and vulnerable, and beautifully so, after my first few books I found room to experiment to a greater degree and wholeheartedly embrace an individual approach which is equal parts heartfelt and aggressive. I no longer limit myself with what I choose to write about, both in my collections and across the online space.”
