My name is Keshia McEntire and I am a freelance writer located in Indianapolis, IN.
I fell in love with journalism as a teen after joining Y-press, a program that offered high school students an opportunity to write for The Indianapolis Star. After my first byline appeared in the Star at the age of 17, I worked hard to acquire 10+ years of experience. I have written for Blavity, Relevant Magazine, Black Girl Nerds, NUVO, the Indianapolis Recorder, Atlanta Daily World, New Pittsburgh Courier, FAF Collective, bewellindy.co and more.
I love covering the arts and the humanities and I have a soft spot for youth issues. I enjoy stories that make people do a double take or rethink preconceived notions. I am looking for freelance writing opportunities in the Indianapolis area and beyond.
