The inspiration for writing poetry came from Sybil’s fathers’ story, which he wrote after her mother passed. Having left home at 13 she knew very little about her parents and initially was so enthralled with his story that she believed it would make a great book, but as she started to write found that writing in verse flowed much easier. Her siblings were also grateful for the writing of this first poem as they also had no idea of the early part of their fathers’ life. From there she found everyday life and happenings around her gave her material to continue writing.

Now retired and not having a mind cluttered with work, it never ceases to amaze her how these stories come to her and just must be written, often waking in the night, mulling over new poems, and having to quickly write lines down before trying to get back to sleep again. The local pastor has also tapped into this gift and she is often asked to write a poem to go with a Sunday sermon.


Sybil Woolmore, the youngest of six siblings, was born in Auckland and raised on a remote sheep and cattle farm on the west coast of the North Island of New Zealand. She has always been a very independent person having been sent off to boarding school at aged 13 and then going flatting straight from school. She had no children but inherited two wonderful step children.


She enjoyed art for many years, selling several paintings and it wasn’t until they retired and moved to Paeroa from Auckland seven years ago that she started writing and joined a newly formed writing group. She is inspired by life and people around her.
