Who ?

To live in such hope we declare, would be a great marvel to the silent hopeless in despair.

I am Cody Connor Kelley. I am

a student, occasional teacher, tea-aholic, and writer,

currently finishing my MA in Shakespeare Studies.

I have a BA in English Literature and a BA in Biblical Studies, and have previously taught both adult learners in college and children at a traditional academy. I have a passion for international students and anyone struggling with cultural displacement, yet my primary passion is writing and the beauty of language. I write articles and stories concerning issues in mental health, cultural identity, and the Christian perspective, while I specialise in the discussion of Autism, depression, narcolepsy, and the issue of individual and collective identity. In addition to the more formal and personal posts of The Last Table, I write short experimental epistolary stories at The Letter Desk, under my pseudonym Sire the fox, whom you'll find scurrying about the site. Outside of here, I am constantly at work on a handful of novels and an extensive collection of poetry. I also enjoy painting, cooking, learning French, playing the violin, watching old movies, eating dark chocolate, and picking flowers in the meadows of the world. I hope to use language in a manner of intentionality, drawing out a kind hope and self-reflective humility. Through a literary ministry,  I write for the underspoken

and misunderstood, the emotionally broken, the lonely,

the wandering families, and the unloved children.

I write for those like the Canaanite woman begging for scraps 

from the table, eager to see her seated beside the king.

 

Resumé

partial

I am a servant oriented worker, with a literary, theology, theatrical philosophy, and educational background, geared towards the provision of genuine work

and assistance.
