Poets Network & Exchange in Association with the Countee Cullen Branch, NYPL presented “An Intimate Conversation and Reading” with Authors Wanda Denise Moore, Journey Back When, Meriam Rodriguez, Adelina’s Perfect Girl and Kiini Ibura Salaam, Ancient, Ancient.
Thank you to everyone who attended Poets Network & Exchange Scholar Lecture Series “An Intimate Conversation and Reading” on October 18th, 2014. It was a lovely, inspiring and enriching experience. Thank you, to my co-moderators (audience members) for contributing to a lively conversation. Your participation and presence added to our program’s success.
Special thanks to our guests authors Wanda Denise Moore, Meriam Rodriguez and Kiini Ibura Salaam. Your presentations were on spot and well received by audience members and yours truly. I am left with the resounding message of the importance of studying craft, writing and not being discouraged. The importance of becoming a member of a writing workshop and community of writers.
Thank you, for your supportive and encouraging words of wisdom. We thank you for sharing your writing rituals, process, methodology for arriving at titles, character development, location and so much more.
A very special thank you to Poets & Writers, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts.
We hope to see you at our next two events for our 2014 season.
