SheryLeigh started writing poetry in middle school, scribbling poems in a journal during her free time. After a nearly 15 year break, inspired by the spoken word artists she saw at local open mics, she decided to write poetry again – this time with a spiritual focus and with the intent of performing. When she stood before a crowd at a Christian open mic in 2007, her spoken word journey began.

With a message grounded in love, hope, and faith, SheryLeigh has shared her original spoken word poetry at open mics, church services and retreats, non-profit and charity events, anniversaries, birthdays, weddings, and family reunions. She has also written numerous customized pieces providing the perfect words to accompany life’s special occasions.
