Ben Kesp is a published multi-genre author, writer, teacher, and brand name who lives in Ireland. With already having published several books, distributed internationally, creativity for Ben is the freedom of expression and believes every individual has the right to read, express, and communicate.  Reading and writing are powerful; entertaining, educating, and enlightening us.  The role of imagination is still as important today as it was in the time of our ancestors.  The act of storytelling forms an integral part of our complex cultures. 


Ben works with the Literature & Culture Corner Blog team providing a platform for writers to share their passion and build confidence in writing. 


Ben has written feature articles for Irish Central, New York; MoonProject, UK; and other online publications.
