Welcome

Hi, I’m Samelia Bankole. I am a writer, storyteller, aspiring artist and teacher.

I am based in Atlanta, Georgia. My experience includes journalism, web content, business writing and creative nonfiction. I thoroughly enjoy writing creative nonfiction, lyric essays and poetry in my spare time.

I grew up in Stratford, Connecticut before moving to Georgia in 2006 with my family. I went to Savannah College of Art and Design to earn my BFA in Professional Writing. I have worked as a freelance writer, associate editor and copywriter all in a few years.

I am also a big fan of Starbucks, podcasts, folk music and great movies. I hope you find what you are looking for here. Please don’t hesitate to contact me. Let’s get to know each other.
