About J.W. Bella
J. W. Bella is a product of Louisiana swamps and good food who transplanted into Texas’ opportunities and love for everything bigger. She’s been a writer for over 15 years since her first introduction to poetry in her seventh grade gifted class. Currently, she’s a high school English teacher in Irving, Texas and sponsors a poetry club that helps teens write and express themselves through written and performance poetry.
Poetry has saved her from death and life thanks to a pen, some very powerful words, a lot of tears, many ripped papers, regrets, joys, and love. She’s forever grateful for her gift and hopes that others will be saved as well.
