Brother Ras Manga told me a few months ago, “make a way, where there is no way.” Since, I have been creating my own way all of my life, I saw no reason to stop now…
I took the liberty to contact my local newspaper “The Dallas New Era”, EST. 1882 ( Dallas, Georgia) with an idea, of posting poetry. The 1st letter, I am unable to share. But they responded & then I sent them my P.L.O.T.S.😉

Kingston Creative, in partnership with JAMPRO, is hosting a Creative Entrepreneur Meetup called Best Pitch Forward. On November 27 at 5 pm, ten creative entrepreneurs are going to be able to pitch for a pool of funds to kick start their creative projects!
Recently, we hosted two workshops entitled ‘Making Your Creative Project Investment Ready’, and ‘How to Make a Winning Pitch’, both led by Dmitri Dawkins CEO of Graft Ventures. Now, creative entrepreneurs who have projects in music, film, animation, software and gaming or any screen-based field, can apply to pitch. Best Pitch Forward is an exciting opportunity for creative entrepreneurs to share their creative ventures with a panel of three investors. From the applications, ten creatives will be chosen to vie for the chance to win an investment in their creative projects. The judges will choose the winner and there will be a People’s Choice award too.
But that’s not all – twenty applicants will also be selected to attend private B2B meetings with a group of wider investors in the first week of December. These private investor match-making sessions are intended to gain additional investment into these 20 projects and move these creative business to the next level. So… opportunity is knocking.. get ready and put your Best Pitch Forward!
Now more than ever, the WORLD NEEDS POETS & WRITERS. As Poets & Writers, we have an obligation to Humanity, to do our part, shining the proverbial light on human nature, as we help one another through life…

As, I chatted with a few of our fellow Poets recently Craig MultiTalented Kirkland, Antonia Valaire, Marj DApoet Wltrs, & Britney Russell, as well as the strong reminders from Sister Cherry Natural, Brother Wise Wurdz, Brother Richie Innocent, Brother Ras Atiba, and Brother Sanjae Nykon Facey, Xavier Lyrykzz Frazer, and one of my mentors, held in the highest of regards – Mr. Bob McNeil, Brothers HC Hendriks, Ras Manga, & Malachi Dermot Smith – who embroider the intricacies of Dub Poetry with music, & promotion, and much respect ALWAYS, to Brother Yasus Afari, for if not for him, I wouldn’t have connected with you all. And I can’t forget our supporters, family & friends.
(((BOWING GRACEFULLY))) & RESPECT😌
Having a book of poetry? It’s an official time-stamp of your existence & the way in which it’s lived. As Sister Marjorie stated, “A book never dies. Someone, somewhere, will pick it up, & dust it off.” This means the heart of the author will pump again…FOREVER. You can do a paperback & ebook at the same time. So if you haven’t done a book! GET ER DONE, Lol! You won’t regret it.
I thank Sister Antonia Valaire again & again for encouraging me to publish a book. Like many, I’ve been writing & compiling poetry for years. I write often. Poets, you know! We’re sensitive & easily expressive to the things going on in existence. WE HAVE TO WRITE, lol! I’m already looking at writing & publishing the 3rd book in the series. I love it!!!😅
My Mommy was the 1st Poet, in my life. It’s a beautiful gift to continue.
“Namastè & One Love”❤💛💚
*Note: My next book will be without my pen-name. And will be geared towards my Ancestry & Jamaica
