About Tynea Lewis

Tynea Lewis is a former elementary teacher who has had a passion for writing ever since she can remember. She was recognized by the International Literacy Association in 2016 and named a 30 Under 30 honoree for her work with literacy through LitPick Student Book Reviews, an online reading and writing program.

Although she always loved writing, she developed a disdain for poetry in middle school when an English teacher harshly critiqued her piece, but she fell in love with again at the end of high school when she used poetry to express emotions from tragedies and struggles she faced. Her poems have been published online and in devozine, a teen devotional magazine.

She writes to express herself and be an encouragement to others. You can connect with her on Twitter and Instagram at @TyneaLewis or on her blog at tynea-lewis.com.

    No one told me about this pain.
    Everything hurts, even my pride.
    It's these emotions I am forced to contain.
