WRITER + SPEAKER + TEACHER
Hello and welcome to my site. My name is Kellea Tibbs and I am a freelance writer, specializing in poetry and nonfiction, with experience as a blogger and content creator. I host a blog and podcast called "the 40 and over project", that focuses on what I like to call, “modern day adulting”, and what life is like for the “40 and over” crowd, including issues like politics, dating, race, social justice, women's rights, and self care and wellness. I also love revisiting old school milestones in pop culture that I know members of Generation X can relate to. Also, using my event planner background, I educate on the "Life Events" that we encounter as we get older that include milestone birthdays, anniversaries, photo organization and family history management, as well as how to plan a funeral.
Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, my background includes a 20+ year career in Higher Education and Event Planning. As a creative, I have been writing since middle school, and as a poet, over the years, I have participated in writing competitions, poetry slams, writing poetry blogs, and writing workshops. Somewhat of a late bloomer, much like the late and iconic writer Toni Morrison, it’s only been since recently, I've been in my 40s, that I have decided to pursue publishing my work, to share with the world. Also, most recently, I have embarked upon a career in public school education, as a teacher. I also love all things planning and planners, including stickers, washi tape, and photo memory keeping.
