About

Much like the way birds innately react to the ebb and flow of weather events, Snowbird Creatives taps into deep awareness and experience to know where to go and when to go there. We use this collective instinct to create intensely meaningful marketing, one piece of quality content at a time.

Jayme Severance
Writing

Jayme grew up in the urban romps Manchester, New Hampshire, and with a bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing from Colby-Sawyer College (double minor in English and Sociology), he is an aspiring copywriter with a meticulous eye for detail.

He is also an author secondary to being an internationally-published poet and essayist in several countries, spanning two continents.

In his spare time, Jayme is passionate about cataloging life experiences and crafting ways to incorporate them into emotionally powerful poems. He holds the view that poetry and copywriting -- two diametrically opposed schools of thought -- are two sides of the same coin; both require conveying an image using a limited amount of words to elicit an emotional response.
