Here's a little about Ralvell:
Ralvell Rogers II is the Founder and CEO of Ambitious Stories, LLC, an independent publishing company that focuses on uplifting often unheard, yet riveting voices of the Midwest, especially Kansas City.
With Ambitious Stories, Ralvell has published “The Kansas City Boys Choir: Providing Hope For Tomorrow” in collaboration with Mr. Ah'Lee Robinson and The Kansas City Boys Choir, and “Improvise: Poems and Sketches” by Kevin Rabas, who is the former Poet Laureate of Kansas (2017-2019).
Rogers was the youth reflection speaker for the Kansas City Chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference’s 2016 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration, and before graduating with his BA in English, Creative Writing at Emporia State University, Rogers founded and presided over the Black Artists’ Club and was the first student-recipient of the Presidential Award for Distinguished Service to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in 2018.
Currently, Ralvell is diligently working through edits for his first book while reviewing applications for The Ambitious Stories Book Scholarship. He looks forward to graduating with his MFA at American University in May, 2022.
