Where Writers Write: Collin Kelley

Welcome to TNBBC's 3rd Installment of Where Writers Write!

Where Writers Write is a weekly series that will feature a different author every Wednesday as they showcase their writing spaces using short form essay, photos, and/or video. As a lover of books and all of the hard work that goes into creating them, I thought it would be fun to see where some of TNBBC's favorite authors roll up their sleeves and make the magic happens.

This is Collin Kelley, a novelist, poet and playwright from Atlanta, Georgia. His second novel, Remain In Light (Vanilla Heart Publishing), was a finalist for the 2012 Townsend Prize for Fiction and is available in eBook format and trade paperback. His critically acclaimed debut novel, Conquering Venus (Vanilla Heart Publishing), was released in 2009 and an Amazon bestseller.

He is co-director of the Atlanta Queer Literary Festival, sits on the board of Poetry Atlanta and on the advisory council for Georgia Center for the Book. By day, Kelley is the managing editor for Atlanta Intown newspaper. He has been a journalist for more than 25 years. 

Collin wrote a guest post for TNBBC back in April of 201o on unconscious connections, and also submitted a previously unpublished poem to our Tell Me A Story feature. 

I'm excited to share today's Where Writers Write post with you because Collin took things up a notch and shot a video for us!!! Check it out....

  1. Collin, I love the whimsy in your office--Opus, the koala, and especially the Bewitched matroishka dolls! What a hoot! I think a writer without whimsy is like a cow without a moo--they just don't get it. Thanks for sharing your space with us!
