Cast Spotlight: Ciera C. Love

by Anna Hartman on April 5, 2017

Ciera C. Love’s words shine bright and stick with me even after she’s left rehearsal. She combines poetry and honesty and presence into an amazing mixture that will make you want to call your own mother and maybe write down her handed-down recipe for peach cobbler.


What is your name?
Ciera C. Love

Where do you write, blog, are published?
I mostly write in my journal. I don’t always share my work but I do have a few pieces on Instagram(@crlv_).

How did you find LTYM?
I found LTYM over a Little Black Book work lunch.

If you are a blogger/writer, what is one of your favorite things you’ve ever written?
My favorite piece of mine started as a writing prompt for a workshop course during undergrad at USCB. With both my mother and brother being veterans, I quickly found myself engaged in this poem I never knew I wanted to write for them. You can read it here.

Tell us two fun facts about yourself.
I’m mom to a 1 year old Rottweiler. I’m a practicing minimalist. These two things coincide–my dog is the size of a small bear so I kind of need the extra room I get from minimalism.

Tell us about your hobbies/interests/things you collect, etc. . .  
I enjoy writing, reading articles and newsfeeds, binge watching Netflix, analyzing movies, people watching, organizing, decorating space, hitting “snooze” on my alarm clock, nursing cacti and succulents, learning and experimenting with digital photography, burning candles and incense, thrifting, singing terribly – and loudly, and rediscovering my hometown, Charleston, SC.

Come hear Ciera’s poetry on April 29. Shows at 5 and 7:30! Click here for tickets.

Feeling unhappy that I will miss your performance, I will be returning from my week long Caribbean cruise. Hopefully the next time; miss you at USCB. Keep in touch.
