Tamara Kelley's Biography

Jan 2012

I discovered my passion for writing at the early age of ten. In 2004, I began to focus intensely on my writing taking refuge in a world of similes and metaphors. At present, I consider my teachers to be Anne Sexton, Sylvia Plath and, most of all, Mary Oliver. I want to acknowledge my professor, Dr. O'Brian, and my friend, Dr. Cook, as well. My first chapbook, 'The Season', was accepted by Foothills Publishing on January 20, 2012- to be released in the upcoming months. Currently I have a Bachelors of Social Work and in September of 2012 will begin seeking my degree in English.

Influences
