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 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 HealthlineMashableInside the JarEloquent Magazine and across 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 newsletter is my way to share updates on all my projects—as well as on the work of other people and organizations that I love. I'm always interested in work that relates to health equity, cannabis, psychedelics, relationships and/or education. To reach me, email
