Featured Artist: Treanor Baring

Please join Synkroniciti in welcoming Houston writer, playwright and poet Treanor Baring. Our new “Flow” issue features her moving and nostalgic memoir essay, “The River.” The protagonist is the mighty Mississippi River, a force of life and death, ambivalent to human hopes and aspirations as all wild things. Treanor relates the experiences of her family and community at a River access point known as Dennis Landing, where they played, grew, and sometimes died. She paints a vivid picture of the immense power of the River which flows through her life and memories, shaping, changing and taking like time itself.

Treanor Wooten Baring is a writer, poet and playwright living in Houston, Texas. In 2021, she survived a tornado that literally blew the roof off, a high-speed car crash, and dastardly treatment for a deadly disease. She concluded that God was trying to tell her something and swore off coffee, Teflon, and swearing, except in short stories. Her middle school plays, devoid of curse words, have been performed all over the world including in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Vietnam, and Australia.

She supported her previous caffeine-habit as a writing coach and by editing scientific doctoral dissertations. Her plans for 2022 and beyond include surviving any other catastrophes thrown her way and writing, writing, writing.
