Kelli Lynn Grey is my pen name. My early professional experience includes:
working as a middle school teacher.
managing a global-facing steel percussion business.
collaborating with Peachtree NORML to create the blog-based column NORML Mom.
reading oracle cards in a crystal shop.
interviewing bands for The Rome Unscene.
running a small-scale intentional community space with my then husband.
More recently, my words have appeared within Healthline, Mashable, Inside the Jar, Eloquent Magazine and across Medium.com. I also collaborate with Wellstar Health System to create marketing materials and with Education Without Limits to create curriculum for students in grades K-12.
In 2018, I established the imprint BAMF Books and published a poetry chapbook titled Harvest. Meanwhile, my full-length collection Queen of Wands: A Poet's Journey with Cancer During the Time of COVID-19 is forthcoming.
When I'm not writing, I'm exploring the art of being human in Atlanta, Georgia, alongside my two neuro-divergent tween-agers. I also sit on the board of the non-profit AMP Rome and support additional organizations that defend civil and human rights.
This blog doubles as a publicly-shared personal resource and as an alternative writing portfolio. I'm always interested in work that relates to health equity, cannabis, psychedelics, relationships and/or education. To reach me, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
