Author. Poet. Mentor.
MéShelle Fae is an educator and mentor. She loves great storytelling and sharing the experiences of those who’ve never known the value of their own voice. Her passion for teaching and developing others led to the creation of meshellefae.com, her online blog for writers who want to hone their craft or learn how to tell their stories on a digital platform. She’s an avid reader of anything she finds interesting and thinks of herself as “the ultimate geeky, weird nerd-girl.” She’s a resident of Charleston, SC where she operates The Writers’ Block, a literacy and mentorship program that offers in-person and online tutoring nationwide. You can find some of her work featured in South 85 Journal, and MéShelle is a 2018 Honorable Mention in the Baltimore Science Fiction Society Annual Poetry Contest.
So, let’s be honest. Writing is hard. It’s also some of the most rewarding, exciting, challenging work that a person can do because it calls so much of the inner self to the forefront. A good writer has to be able to take critique. A [great] writer has to be able to know when to scrap a project and start over. A good writer has to be able to tell a story. A [great] writer has to make their audience believe it.
This is my passion. It feels like it always has been on some level, but it just took me a long time to get here. That’s why I can help you. Along the way, I made plenty of mistakes, met a lot of awesome and successful writers and editors, and took the big leaps! Now, I have my dream career as an educator, a published poet, an actress, and a community mentor and advocate. Also, I’ll be officially publishing my first full-length book of poetry this summer. And I write this blog. For you.
Mentorship is my passion, so please know that I will do my utmost to help you succeed and connect you to the people and resources that will get you there. I know your joys in this craft and your sorrows. I’ve been there. I’m still growing through them. My goal is that we build a community that learns, shares, and grows through this thing we call “writing” together. Please take the time to introduce yourself in the comments, join the mailing list, and check out some of the features as we continue to build the dream together.
