Hi, I’m Charnell Peters. I’m a communication scholar, editor, and creative writer.

I research. My research interests include the communication of race and space, identity and belonging, and humanistic and arts-based research methods. I am particularly interested in how people with marginalized identities occupy and traverse spaces, physical and virtual, to reclaim, remember, and transform in community.

I edit. I am the blog editor for Ruminate Magazine, a contemplative and creative space. If you’re interested in work that will help you slow down and listen deeply, check out the magazine.

I write. I write poetry and creative prose. Two of my poems have been nominated for Pushcart Prizes. My poetry chapbook was a finalist in Big Lucks’ open reading period and was the Honorable Mention in the Southeast Review’s Editors’ Choice Digital Chapbook Prize.

Thanks for visiting my site!
