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.
