Massey is a passionate writer and poet who loves to play with imagery exploring human rights, womanhood, sexuality, religion, spirituality, and more. She wishes to inspire others through the social experience and storytelling to think better and higher about themselves and each other through self-expression. Her first book Bursting at the Seams will do this and more.
Bursting at the Seams: A Collection of Poetry by Chantel Massey uses vivid and vibrant imagery as an ode to womanhood as a black woman. Massey inspires and moves in her poetry through storytelling to foster a language and dialogue about rape culture effects on family, fighting illness, gossip, sexuality, being in love, falling out of love, womanhood, identity, spirituality, religion, about blackness and what it means to be black and/or safe in America as woman of color. She explores the complexities of intersectionality through poetry and lessons learned from her own experience walking into womanhood as a Black woman.
