Karleigh began writing poetry in April of 2013 after a performance of Shane Koyczan’s poem “To This Day” left her anxious to share her experiences with people who could relate. Before poetry she spent all of her free time working back stage as well as performing in the theatre. She grew up doing productions in her hometown, Decatur Texas Before moving to Arlington to be closer to poetry venues in the Metroplex. She bases her writing off of the many life experiences that have brought her to this point in her life where she has been allowed the opportunity to effect people in a positive and healing manner.

She was a member of the 2013 Forth Write Youth Slam Team based out of Fort Worth, Texas. Together, they traveled to Chicago to compete in the Brave New Voices poetry festival where they placed Top 10 in the World and Karleigh was invited to perform on the Best Of BNV stage.

A chapbook and CD are both in the works as she prepares for the 2014 Women Of The World Slam in Austin, Brave New Voices 2014 in Philadelphia, and the National Poetry Slam Competition in Oakland. She hopes to continue writing and performing poetry and she cannot wait to see where her opportunities take her next.
