I'm Karmen Elaine

Freelance writer, content creator and photographer based just out side of Detroit, Michigan. Returned boomerang by way of Chicago. My love for writing started at a very young age. Although a few poems and short essays were published through small publications, I often built works of fiction hidden in private blogs and journals. In 2020, I was granted an opportunity to share my voice diving into the nuances of the hospitality industry,

Content creation and website copy have gone hand in hand while building out social media platforms for small businesses and startups.
