Séline in front of The New York City Public Library

Séline DuMane has a Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature with a minor in Professional Writing. Her passions involve in becoming a novelist or an editor in the publishing industry. Her immense appreciation for literature comes from an early age after prevailing over a speech delay, and now she has tremendous pride in educating herself about other various literary genres, worldly languages and cultures (any fantastical world counts as well,) and philosophical concepts. It goes hand-in-hand with her love to travel; her favorites places thus far are — South Korea, New York, and Croatia.

Currently, Séline resides in Atlanta, Georgia where she could be found at any local coffee shop drinking several chai lattes, reading a fantasy book, booking her next trip across the world, and/or working on her latest writing project (which admittedly means scrolling through Pinterest for hours on end.) She could also be found blogging about literary content through her Instagram platform under the same handle: @lifebytheink.

I find my voice in between the lines of loose-leaf paper and execute it powerfully with the ink of my fountain pen. That’s why I believe ink, in all forms, should be just as valued as speech because it had allowed some of our greatest creations to not only be expressed, but seen by all in the world.”
