Kristi Ellis Witt

Kristi Ellis Witt began sharing her poetry and fiction publicly a few years ago and believes every community needs art in all its forms—from literary, to visual, to performing. She taught high school English in the North Bay for many years, and is an advocate for poetry and creative writing enrichment in public schools. As a poet-teacher with the California Poets in the Schools non-profit program, she’s enjoyed encouraging and guiding youth to explore writing their own poems and discovering their creative voices. She’d love for more people of all ages to realize the benefits of creating, sharing, or appreciating art. Maya Angelou said it well: “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” When the old excuse of having writer’s block takes hold, Kristi reminds herself there’s never really a shortage of things to write about—she finds inspiration just about anywhere, including the unique and natural beauty of Lake County where she lives.
