Bio and Upcoming Projects

Poet Bio: Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, poet, Kellea Tibbs, has been writing since middle school. As a poet, who, over the years, has participated in writing completions, poetry slams, writing poetry blogs, and writing workshops.

You can check out some of her poetry on the following sites:
