a practice in being

I spent the better part of my 20’s and 30’s being someone I wasn’t. I tried to be someone I thought I should be. It wasn’t until about 3 years ago that I started being true to who I am.

It’s a simple shift in perspective in theory. In real life, it sucks and worth it at the same time. The part that sucks is breaking the mental habits and traps. Somewhere along the line through stops, starts, mistakes and triumphs, it gets easier. It’s a practice in accessing the real you.



At Access+Optimism, we get out of bed every morning to create a world that doesn’t exist yet…a world of access and optimism for all people.™

About Evy Zen

Evy Zen (formerly Eva PoeteX) is a mystic poetess, eclectic artist, fiction writer, and wellness advocate who calls the Greater Cleveland area home sweet home. Born a Clevelander with a Greek lineage, the arts started being a major part of her life the moment she picked up her first crayon. To date, dozens of Evy's writings have been featured in publications like Thought Catalog, The Journey Magazine, and Journey of the Heart: Women's Spiritual Poetry. As a spoken word poet, she has also had the opportunity to collaborate with numerous musicians across the globe. Currently, Evy is the Founding Editor of Poehemian Press and runs the decade-young poetry website www.Poehemian.com (formerly The Artistic Muse). Additionally, she is the author of several independently and locally published poetry books, including "Esoterra" and "Sacred Shapes." Furthermore, she works as a full-time freelance writer and editor. In 2012, Evy received a Bachelor of Arts degree (honors) in Creative Writing from Cleveland State University. She also obtained a Diploma (distinction) in Exercise Nutrition from Shaw Academy four years later. When she's not creating, Evy Zen recharges her batteries by reading her weight in books ("The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho is her personal favorite), going on epic bike rides, meditating to ambient music, and racing super cars behind the safety of her computer or TV screen.
