Ernie Chiara is a writer and artist from the Boston area. He loves to write about people with complex lives and hardened exteriors, people we’d pass on the streets without a second glance. When he isn’t writing or doing freelance graphic design, Ernie enjoys playing with his kids, painting, binge-watching Netflix shows, celebrating his friends’ successes, and reading as many books as humanly possible. He was a 2016 Pitch Wars mentee, and is excited to co-mentor with his former mentor, Kristen Lepionka. Ernie is represented by Michelle Richter of Fuse Literary, and is passionate about giving back to the writing community.
For Pitch Wars 2019, Ernie Chiara is co-mentoring with Kristen Lepionka.
