  • Brianna Corley started creating content her freshmen year of college as a reporter at her school radio station and has not stopped since.
  • Having grown up in the South, where red beans and rice should be eaten on Mondays and what does and doesn't belong in gumbo is debated far and wide, Brianna has a deep interest in how culture and food connect with one another.
  • She has always aspired to become a writer in every sense of the word and has gained experience writing in a variety of styles with a variety of purposes to achieve this goal.


Brianna has been writing articles since 2018. She was the Editor-in-Chief of her college paper, The Current Sauce, where she helped spearhead a primarily digital model of publication. She earned her first professional writing job at The HOTH before she finished university and worked as an editorial intern at the culture and literary magazine Deep South where she wrote articles exploring Southern food's historical significance. As an intern, she had the opportunity to interview Vince Hayward, Camellia Beans' CEO and owner, for an article covering Louisiana Red Beans and Rice day which is a very uniquely Louisiana accolade.


Brianna has two bachelor's degrees from Northwestern State University of Louisiana in English and Communication. These degrees have given her the ability to write effectively for multiple genres and audiences. Her Communication degree has also provided her with experience ensuring that her articles are accurate and fairly portray their subjects. She hopes to further build on her writing skillset by continuing her education at The New School, where she is pursuing a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing as a member of the class of 2024.
