For as long as she can recall, Chanelle has been writing. The written word has been pivotal in her personal journey to becoming the type of person, healer, & practitioner she is today. As such, her poetry is an immense piece of the medicine she shares with her clientele & students ~ often, she has been told that just reading her written descriptions of plants has been medicine in & of itself.
Chanelle has taught poetry in schools to children & young adults through Poetry in the Schools (RI) + Deep Center (GA), been invited to read poetry all over the States & in Canada, & has been published in numerous in-print & online collections such as Deluge; Ömëgä, The 4 Poets, Rabid Oak, The Colton Review, & forthcoming work in Empty Houses.
Chanelle continues to refine her written work at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC & under the tutelage of Elaine Kahn & Joanna Penn Cooper.
