Poet Talk with Chyrel J. Jackson and Lyris D. Wallace
Mirrored Images From Amazon: "Two sisters and authors are back with their follow-up sequel Mirrored Images. This is where their story in Different Sides of the Same Coin left off. In this poetic adaptation Chyrel J. Jackson and Lyris D. Wallace attempt to navigate the pouring rains of life conditions as they tell their tale in poetic contemporary modern verse reflecting on present day social and political events facing the Black community. In this heartrending collection of poems, the sisters further deal with life as it unfolds as they try to arrive to a collective center of peace and understanding. Mirrored Images is a written meditation about people’s sometimes darker actions and motives. We journey with these ladies as they honestly tackle racism, frayed familial dynamics and embracing a sister bond that has proven to be impenetrable. This time around Blues is the preferred backdrop of their gripping tale. Prepare to be wowed beyond expectation as these writings and poems deliver more of everything you loved in book one while remaining authentically true to their soulful and riveting narrative as Black women. Where their first collection of Black Expression revisited Harlem Renaissance and cashed with 2018-2019 social unrest. In Mirrored Images they rip the bandages off human life experience and force you to see what most are happier pretending just does not exist at all. Spoken word is back and these literary writers take social conflict and unrest to brand-new unchartered heights." Chyrel J. Jackson and Lyris D. Wallace are avid lovers, readers and writers of African American Literature. They grew up in a Southern Suburb of Chicago, IL. Country Club Hills. As young girls they read Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, and Judy Blume novels. College was the real scholastic awakening introducing these two Literary Enthusiasts to the Literary works of their great ancestors: James Baldwin, Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, Langston Hughes, Nikki Giovanni and Sonia Sanchez. These writers influenced Chyrel and Lyris. It only makes sense that they would now be writing in the Spirit of these ancestors. Giving a voice to social issues that plague our modern time. They have written for much of their adult lives. Political Opinion Editorials, Book Reviews, Romance Novels, Television Show Treatments, Journaling, and Poetry are what these sisters enjoy writing best. When asked why they write? Their answer, they write for visibility. They want to be a voice for all those who feel they have something of value to say but aren’t capable of putting it in their own words. Words surpass life, love and loss. Writers are born when life intersects with time and chance. You will always find them doing what they love reading, and writing. Writing, and telling stories is how they fulfill their divine purpose. You can’t ignore what is so visible and undeniable. Writing saved us at our lowest points in living. We hope to provide healing through our writing. We want to uplift others through their pain as writing has uplifted us and provided great healing in time of profound despair and hurt. Throughout the passage of time words remain. Sistersrocnrhyme.com

Poet Talk with Robin Klammer - by Lisa Tomey
Words to Light My Way Home About Robin Klammer: In a teeny tiny secluded town in Northern Ontario of Canada, Robin longs for the sunny days of normalcy before the Covid-19 era. Just this past long night of winter, (cue Game of Thrones theme music), she found herself in envy of the many birds who flew within sight of her kitchen window.  When Robin doesn't have her nose stuck in one of the many books she hoards, you'll often catch her daydreaming. About what; nobody knows. She loves animals and nature, except the bugs, though she understands they're part and parcel of the world at large.  One day, in the not too far future, she hopes to travel and have an acreage with goats, and maybe a donkey, but definitely cats and dogs and a parrot. Robin wears her heart on her sleeve, though she often scowls like an ogre. She hopes you'll understand this quirk. In the meantime, she'll keep working on her writing projects and get some much needed, albeit macabre, humor out into the world as well. You can find more of Robin's writing on Medium.com

Poet Talk with Lisa Dailey by Lisa Tomey
Lisa Dailey is the owner of Sidekick Press in Bellingham, Washington. Her indie publishing house focuses on memoir, anthology, poetry, as well as selected works of fiction. What started with a handful of poets writing COVID-19-related poetry and the effects of being in quarantine during National Poetry Writing Month in April quickly evolved into a desire to combine the works into an anthology. Red Wheelbarrow Writers’ third publication and first book of poetry, This Uncommon Solitude, was published by Sidekick Press on October 15, 2020. This Uncommon Solitude captures the myriad and diverse experiences during these times of quarantine and the COVID-19 pandemic. For many of us, poetry has helped connect us, one to another, as we share experiences and insights, express our grief and sadness, fears and pain, gratitude and hope. Encouraged by poets Susan Chase-Foster, Victoria Doerper, and Joe Nolting, typical prose writers in the Red Wheelbarrow Writers’ group took up the challenge to harness their inner poets. This Uncommon Solitude is the result of a true collaboration, created with tenderness for a tender time in history. Here is the link for the launch event. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/lisa-dailey-in-conversation-with-cami-ostman-square-up-tickets-148828701653 Also, if folks want to hear more reading from This Uncommon Solitude, they can do so here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aV3IWFWDUfY&t=16s

Poet Talk - in Remembrance of Lisa F. Gullo with Editor, Victoria Hyla Maldonado by Lisa Tomey
Poet Biography from the Editor, Victoria: "Lisa F. Gullo was a prolific poet who never had the courage to publish her work during her lifetime. She used her writing to try to work through the demons and traumas in her life that included child sexual abuse, hemiplegic migraines and seizures, depression, anxiety, questions of faith, relationships, and attempts at suicide, which ultimately took her life in December 2018. With her family’s permission, her nearly 500 poems were collected and anthologized and became an epic chronicle of her intimate battles and journey to faith." Note from the Editor, Victoria Maldonado: I am the editor and introduction writer of the collection, and I am submitting this on her behalf to gain awareness for the collection that has already helped so many with traumas in their own lives. In addition, numerous pieces of artwork were donated by artists and photographers to illustrate various poems on the collection.

Book Review - Juntu Ahjee's "Ebonology"
Juntu Ahjee is a writer, which, considering where you are reading this makes perfect sense. Originally from Oklahoma City, OK, he began his journey in 1979 at age 10, writing short horror stories which attracted the attention of his English and social study teachers. During his formative years, his writing would evolve into historical essays, journals based on social issues which earned accolades through youth super scholar programs. In 1988, he earned an Urban Spirit Award for his essay on freedom of speech, that led to a literary scholarship to the University of Chicago. In 1999, he relocated to Seattle, WA and embarked on music writing. He was a ‘ghostwriter’ for several local hip-hop artists, to which he recorded underground influential songs like ‘Back in the Hood’ and ‘A Million Dead N***AS’ regarding social consciousness and political corruption in the urban communities. In 2007, he strongly took to poetry, writing several critically acclaimed pieces. In 2019, his poem, ‘81st Street’ won the 2019 National Poetry Award for Nubian Poets. After many years of struggling through life tribulations, Juntu was encouraged through family & friends to pursue a writing career. Although he continues to write literary essays on his personal website, his short stories range from crime dramas, historical fiction, comedies, thrillers, family dramas, and westerns. He has many more efforts in current development soon to be released. As Juntu would say, “You are the author of your own story, embrace every chapter!” Amazon

Book Review of "She Writes from the Heart" by LaMia Michele - Reviewed by Lisa Tomey
LaMia Michele was born and raised outside of Philadelphia, Pa in a small city that is packed with great history, that city is Chester, Pa. She attended the Pennsylvania public school system where she excelled in reading and writing. They were her favorite subjects. While her style of writing is uniquely hers to own there is one word that perfectly describes the kind of writer Pierce is, an uncompromised truthful one. LaMia is a poet and what sets her apart and makes her unique is that she has used pain and self-reflection as a mechanism for penning brilliant prose and heartfelt poetry. This biblical scripture embodies Lamia’s life’s mantra, “out of the abundance of her heart flows the issues of life”. Pierce’s path to healing goes hand in hand with her journey of spiritual awakening. More than an author, and grandmother of two, this poetess enjoys blogging.

Book Review of Timo Schmitz's book "For Better and For Worse" as reviewed by Lisa Tomey
Timo Schmitz offered the book download of "For Better and For Worse" on his blog. You can get a copy here: For Better and For Worse In his book, Timo Schmitz has delved into the many aspects of relationships. With the title "For Better AND for Worse" the word of importance here is AND. He emphasizes the importance of relationships not being an either/or proposition but a more healthy point of view might be to pay attention to the AND. After all, healthy relationships spend a good amount of time on that aspect. There is a mixture of prose and poetry in this interesting, thoughtful read. Schmitz does have the gift of writing and he opens up this gift for all to see. Also see Falling Apart by Timo Schmitz

Book Review: Feeling Human by Susi Bocks as reviewed by Lisa Tomey
When it comes to Feeling Human, Susi Bocks has nailed it. And before I go on, let me tell you about the artist, Terry Susi. The work she placed in this book is amazing. She captured the emotions portrayed in Bocks words. What a lovely connection.  This book is an invitation to delve into the emotions which come from feeling human, a most appropriate title. In this book, you will find the results of careful study by the writer and poetry to emphasize the introductions she writes, so perfectly.  Feeling Human is about emotions, poetry about emotions, artistic interpretations, and more. I believe this book would make a great activity book for discovering self along with activities such as writing poetry or essays. Bocks, get your workshop ready, I am signing up!

Reading this book has put me in a forecast of sunshine and cloudy times, tissues sometimes needed and other time, a pair of flip-flops as I enjoy the warmth of this beautiful ink. Love, life, happiness, sadness and a healthy mix as memoir poetry, touches my heart. And I put this in the present tense as this book is on I will keep in my collection as one to cherish and read over and again. My favorite poem in this collection is “What Matters.” And I invite you to read it and find out what truly does matter and how when you read on into this amazing book, you won’t want to put it down.

Poet Talk with Ivor Steven by Lisa Tomey
Website: http://ivors20.wordpress.com Instagram:  www.instagram.com/ivors20 Facebook:  www.facebook.com/ivorrichard “Tullawalla”, is due to be released on 30th March, and for preorder, here are the links Barnes and Noble  Tullawalla by Ivor Steven, Kerri Costello, Hardcover | Barnes & Noble® (barnesandnoble.com) Amazon.com: Tullawalla eBook: Steven, Ivor, Costello, Kerri, Harris, patricia: Books www.books2read.com/Tullawalla YouTube  trailer, produced by Fae Corps Publishing (3) Tullawalla Book Trailer - YouTube https://youtu.be/GS0cNSiK2v8 Ingrid's Review of Tullawalla by Ivor Steven I have just finished reading Ivor Steven’s enchanting poetry collection, Tullawalla. The collection is subtitled ‘A Meeting Place/Where My Empty Hands Are Full Of Memories And Rhymes.’ Just how appropriate the title and subtitle are will become apparent to anyone reading this collection soon after they begin. Divided into chapters, this poetry book reads like a story, with each chapter delightfully different from the last but fitting within the overarching poetic spectrum of the collection. Ivor’s subjects range from nature through love and loss to the realm of fantasy and beyond. What comes through most strongly in the work is the poet’s undying love for his deceased wife, whose presence is felt on every page, even where she is not the direct subject of a particular poem. He deals directly with his loss in the chapter ‘My Empty Hands Are Full Of Memories and Dreams.’ The poem ‘Everlasting smile’ brought tears to my eyes. It begins with the lines: My eyes, narrowly cracked My cheeks, slightly etched I rest here, retracing every mile Remembering, your everlasting smile . The acid test for poetry as far as I’m concerned is ‘does it touch the heart?’ and Ivor’s book does more than this: it breaks the heart then puts it back together again, then lifts it up above the clouds into a landscape of rainbows and dreams: I then saw in our narrowing crevasse the universe, in a blade of grass The above poetic nod to Whitman is found in the poem ‘My Neighbour Wasn’t Mowing His Lawn.’ There are so many warm moments in this book, from a simple delight in nature (e.g. ‘Grasshopper’s Hallelujah’) to a childhood memory of a bushfire (‘In The Light Of Night’), that it’s impossible to feel sad after reading it, though some of the subject matter is indeed harrowing. I am also impressed by Ivor’s range of poetic subjects: from a trilogy of poems about his own personal dragon to his experience of sleeping ‘like a white chocolate Jesus’ during quarantine; there is literally never a dull moment in this collection. My verdict? I cannot recommend this title highly enough. Ivor’s distinctive poetic voice and narrative skill combine to transport the reader to a better place beyond the spectrum of our everyday worries, doubts and fears. Music by Pixabay

Poet Talk with Sheree Ann Martines by Lisa Tomey
Episodes with music are only available on Spotify.
In love with the written word, Sheree Ann Martines has been a prolific writer for more than four decades. After writing her first poems in third grade, poetry became a life-long passion. Her poetry and essays have appeared in the Fog City Poetry, the Martha Reid Poetry Review and Women, Etc. As a communications professional for almost three decades, Sheree has written extensively for the American Red Cross and Goodwill Industries. A contributor to NPR and author of Rude Awakening, a true crime thriller, she has just completed a draft of her anthology of poems and prose. Currently, she focuses on writing her memoir about her dark struggle with the aftermath of child abuse, devastating grief, and her long battle with bipolar disorder. Learning how to survive and thrive, Sheree hopes this book (working title-Mad as a Hatter) will help others dealing with tragedy and mental disorder. Discussing her writing style, Sheree states, “I have lived a life that leaves me no option but to torture paper with pen. I do so with the hope at least one soul will be set on the road to recovery.” She infuses her writing with personal, painful, sometimes graphic, but ultimately hopeful insight. Martines graduated cum laude from Appalachian State University with degrees in Communications and Marketing. An avid outdoorswoman who loves camping, whitewater rafting, and “digging in the dirt,” Sheree calls the mountains of North Carolina home. · NPR: 2001-Commentary: “Now My Guitar Gently Weeps”: The Death of George Harrison · NPR: 2002-Finding Hope in a Seemingly Hopeless World · NPR: 2006-Not Defined · NPR: 2007-Eulogy for A Lost Career · Fog City Poetry Competition: 2007- Cicatrice · Living with Bipolar Disorder Blog: Website www.livingbipolar.blogspot.com 2007- Present · Women, Etc. 2008-Eulogy for A Lost Career · Martha Reid Poetry Review-2009-Hearts in the Half Moon · Everyday Health-2009-Manic Monster · E-How-Columnist 2009 – 2019 · Circadian Rhythm Poetry blog · Rude Awakening-Author 2013-2019, published December 2019 www.rude-awakening-rob-whedbee.com https://www.amazon.com/Sheree-Ann-Martines/e/B084Q13FCH?ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1&qid=1611774888&sr=8-1

Poet's Connection with Denise Gibbon by Lisa Tomey
We had our monthly Living Poetry Poet's Connection meeting on January 9 2021 with special guest Denise Gibbon, Literary Attorney. She talked about copyright and answered several questions related to literary law and poetry protection. From the About section of Denise Gibbons website: "A publishing consultant as well as a licensed attorney in both California and New York, I represent and educate authors about contracts, copyright and other publishing issues. After graduating from the University of San Francisco School of Law over twenty-five years ago, I began my legal career as a litigator in Los Angeles, California, where I worked for two large firms — Crosby, Heafey, Roach & May, and a New York based firm (hold your breath), Wilson, Elser, Moskowitz, Edelman & Dicker. In the course of representing authors in California, I prepared and negotiated publishing contracts for the Los Angeles Chapter of the national mystery writers’ organization, Sisters In Crime, and wrote a legal column dubbed “The Legal Weapon” for the organization’s publication, Ransom Notes. As an attorney in New York, I persuaded a large New York publisher not to categorize my client’s already-published true-life-non-fiction work as fiction, successfully convinced producers of a popular TV tabloid to remove libelous material about a client from a segment prior to its national broadcast date, and persuaded a prominent and reluctant publisher to terminate three publishing contracts with a successful but dissatisfied author. Prior to that, I was a volunteer-attorney for the Author’s Guild, a distinguished national organization that educates writers about their legal rights. There, I reviewed, explained and revised contracts of various kinds for numerous Guild members. There was also life before and between the law gigs. As a reporter for a New York newspaper, I covered local news and interviewed artists such as Janis Ian, Richie Havens, and Cleo Laine for feature articles. In California, as a member of the Los Angeles Poets and Writers Collective, and tutored by the inimitable Jack Grapes, I published and edited poetry with Bombshelter Press and sang for three years with the San Francisco Symphony Chorus under the direction of Seiji Ozawa. Finally, for seventeen years, I had the presence of mind to earn a precarious and rewarding living as a professional singer in San Francisco. And between you and me, I’d do it again."

Poet Talk with Utkarsh Saraswat by Lisa Tomey
Utkarsh is a college student studying medicine and is a writer by passion. He is well known for his free flowing relatable poems and short stories. Utkarsh was born in a town near Moradabad, India on June 27, 2000. Having passed out of school with science, he is currently studying in college. His love for literature started in his school days when he was very fond of writing speeches, essay and short stories. He was also fond of debates and song-writing (which he admits are hilariously embarrassing). This habit of song-writing later turned into his love for poetry, which he used to write as a vent to his emotions. In June 2017, after some inspiration from his family and with some help from his dad, Utkarsh announced his first book, “Melody Of Words”, which was a compilation of some of his best poems at that time and topped at 6th in poetry on Amazon.

Poet Talk with Danielle Martin by Lisa Tomey
As a Caribbean woman and mother, Danielle Martin crafts poetry with a distinct vibe and intensity innate of her experiences and culture. However, she believes we are all versions of each other. Meeting at different stages or sometimes barely touching as we slide through life's chaotic dimensions. Writing is her solace and "Kissing Shadows: Caribbean Love Poems" is her first published Anthology of poetry. Additionally, her work has been featured in several publications, Ariel Chart, Claudius Speaks, Free Lit Magazine, the 2016 and 2017 Poetry Marathon Anthologies and most recently the Organic Poet. Danielle currently spends her time engaged in writing workshops and drinking copious amounts of coffee. Her favourite mantra is... "And this too shall pass". Look out for new work from this emerging writer, once she defeats her nemesis...procrastination. Check out and follow Danielle Martin on: https://www.twitter.com/cosquellemind Instagram Facebook About "Kissing Shadows" "This anthology is an intimate weaving of life and love experiences, from the pen of the Caribbean's newest addition in its long roll call of literary poets. Ms. Martin's work is new, fresh and uniquely enticing like the rhythmic ebb and flow of ocean waves under a luscious full moon. She draws you into a tapestry of raw emotion that stretches from the shadows of youth to womanhood. From the euphoria of first love to loss and grief, she takes us further still into the depths of self discovery, wading through the choppy waters of life. Until we miraculously resurface, though gasping for air, soaked in salty tears, still awed by the wonder of being alive." Amazon Page

This adaptation highlights the human experience of life, love, loss, parting and sorrow. Timeless wording, honestly written with a little of the unexpected. Black Expression has never been more relevant and real. This work is an interesting twist on Harlem Renaissance revisited as it collides with 2020 social struggles of our current time. In no short order we are reminded of why written and spoken word is so vital to the sustenance of African American Literature. They have written for much of their adult lives. Political Opinion Editorials, Book Reviews, Romance Novels, Television Show Treatments, Journaling, and Poetry are what these sisters enjoy writing best. When asked why they write? Their answer, they write for visibility. They want to be a voice for all those who feel they have something of value to say but aren’t capable of putting it in their own words. Words surpass life, love and loss. Writers are born when life intersects with time and chance. You will always find them doing what they love reading, and writing. Writing, and telling stories is how they fulfill their divine purpose. You can’t ignore what is so visible and undeniable. Writing saved us at our lowest points in living. We hope to provide healing through our writing. We want to uplift others through their pain as writing has uplifted us and provided great healing in time of profound despair and hurt. Throughout the passage of time words remain. Sistersrocnrhyme.com Different Sides of the Same Coin Book
