Sara Jewell is an award-winning narrative journalist who strives to tell stories that shine a light on the indomitable power of the human spirit. Her writing is a mix of humour and poignancy, opinion and curiousity.

Sara's "Field Notes" column, an Atlantic Community Newspaper Awards finalist in 2013, appears bi-weekly in The Citizen-Record newspaper.

In October 2016, Field Notes, the book, will be published by Nimbus Publishing. A collection of essays inspired by the column, Sara will be sharing more of her observations and conversations about rural life.
