About Melissa

About MelissaHi there! I am Melissa Currence. I’m a writer from Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.

I love writing. Don’t you?

I have a couple writing projects in the works. I blog here at MelissaCurrence.com about writing and poetry. I also write at StubbyCurrence.com.

Tethered is my first collection of poetry. I’ve been published a few places, including Ohio State Alumni Magazine, Cincy Magazine and bustedhalo.com. I have placed in a few award competitions: Frontiers in Writing Contest, Poetry Society of Virginia, English Club of Xavier University and Inktank/Cincinnati CityBeat. I’ve attended a few writing conferences including Tribe Conference and Antioch Writers’ Workshop.

I heart you, you little paper angels!

I heart you, you little paper therapists!

What I write

I write poetry and essays mostly. But I also love to write fiction.

I’m obsessed with journaling. I call it survival writing. Here is picture of all my journals I’ve kept over the years.
