Melissa A. Bond

Melissa Bond is a poet, memoirist, stirrer of intellectual pots and advocate for heart-based action. Writing is her through line to the divine. It's an act of paying attention which is the best way she knows, like a thousand stringed instrument, to stay in tune with the awe of the world.

With over 25 years of experience, Melissa loves to connect with audiences on topics that open the eyes and make the heart giddy.


"Because mama locked me out when the white powder made her nose bleed and I cried and said stop and my eyes were her knives."

"Bond's writing smashes through the norm and comes out the other side an explosion of art, life, wit and tenacity."
