Kewayne Wadley (1987-Present) is a Memphis-based poetic storyteller whose mission is to spread love and inspiration through the power of words. Breathing his first human breath in Connecticut, he wound up spending most of his childhood days in the Deep South and much farther south: Central America.
Distinctly amorous lines infused with sultry overtones, Kewayne’s poetry paints vivid pictures of whirlwind romances and loves as unshaken as placid lakes. The unwavering support of his loved ones, especially his grandmother is what drives him the most. His innate ability to see life through an unconventional lens can be witnessed in his innovative approach to his craft.
Throughout his writing career, Kewayne’s poems have been featured in an array of anthologies and zines, including but not limited to Collected Whispers (2006), For This Cause Writers Unite (2012), The Poetic Bond IX (2019), Porter Gulch Review: 36th Edition (2020), and Who’s Who in American Poetry (2021). He also was recently crowned the 3rd Place Winner for his haiku “Full of Posies” (Dreamers Magazine, 2022) and received Honorable Mention for “Love Sometimes” (The Poetic Bond X). In addition to book number two, he is the father of Listening to Songs at Midnight.
When he isn’t jotting down romantic free-verse on any writing surface he can find, this multi-passionate writer is either drawing, painting, or listening to an eclectic assortment of music. He also has quite the green thumb, so he has taken up gardening. To stay in-the-know, make sure to follow Kewayne on social media (IG: @PoeticBlues1, FB: @Romero.Amour, & Poem Hunter: Kewayne Wadley)
