    Special 2-Hour Show with Panel of Poets

    in Self Help

    In celebration of National Poetry Month, we've brought together a panel of 4 poets to share their poetry in a 2-hour special.

    National Poetry Month was inspired by the success of Black History Month, held each February, and Women's History Month, held in March. In 1995, the Academy of American Poets convened a group of publishers, booksellers, librarians, literary organizations, poets, and teachers to discuss the need and usefulness of a similar month long holiday to celebrate poetry. The first National Poetry Month was held in 1996. (courtesy of Wikipedia)

    Our guest poets will read their works (as many as they wish during their segment); answer a question or two from host and hostess; and take questions or comments from you, the audience. 


    Here's the line up: 



    8:00-8:30:  Andresia RealshtzPoet; www.Facebook.com/RealshtzPoetry
     
    8:30-9:00: LadyDivine; www.LadyDivineNC.com
     
    Intermission: Kenya Eugene's song, My Joy; https://youtu.be/HsKLdc8W1C0
     
    9:00-9:30: Ci Ci Keenan; www.Facebook.com/CiCiKeenan and
     
    9:30-10-00: Question and Answer open to the listeners


    Come for the poetry! Stay for the Q & A!

    "Waiting for the One" author L.A. Fiore LIVE on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    One of the most exquisite romance books I've ever read is "Waiting for the One".  Author L.A Fiore's story wrenched every emotion I had right out of me and I'm so delightfed to welcome her to Authors on the Air.  Liz wrote and said this:  "I love writing; love creating worlds of my own and characters that, after the journey we share, feel more like real members of my family. The goal of my writing is to not just tickle your funny bone but to also touch a nerve. I want readers to feel every emotion when reading one of my books: from ecstatic joy to exquisite pain. I want you to laugh and cry and when you come to the end, I want you to feel as if you lost a little piece of yourself to the story. My two latest releases are Waiting for the One, released on April 28th, a quirky romance with a dark side and A Glimpse of the Dream, releasing on July 7th, a love story about second chances with a twist. I hope you give them a try and enjoy the emotional ride."  Visit L.A. Fiore here on https://www.facebook.com/l.a.fiore.publishing.


    Thank you to our sponsors - Gennita Low author of sexy spy-fy romance; D.D. Corbitt, whose book "The Amaretto" is a terrific Florida Keys sailing mystery; and to author, composer and musician Robert Gregory Browne for our theme music.

    Suspense writer Linda Prather joins Authors on the Air LIVE to discuss writing

    in Books

    Authors on the Air Host Pam Stack welcomes suspense and paranormal writer Linda Prather.  Linda says this: "Something was missing in my life.  I wanted to write.  No, actually I needed to write.  In the mid 90s I joined a group called Green River Writers in Louisville, Kentucky.  The next five years contain many of my fondest memories of being a part of a group of authors.  Critiquing and being critiqued.  Learning to hone a craft that isn't simply putting words on a page.  I combined my love of mysteries with my love of metaphysics.  The payoff?  In 2005 I submitted my first novel, The Gifts, A Jacody Ives Mystery to Echelon Press, a small trade publisher.  After several months of nail biting and walking the floor I was offered a contract to publish.  Wow! I believed The Gifts to be a good book, but my readers amazed me even more when it took 2nd place in the Preditor's and Editor's contest for best novel of 2006 and was nominated for The David Award.  Reader requests resulted in my writing a prequel, Sacred Secrets, which has not been released by Amazon Digital. Research into the third Jacody Ives Mystery led to my studies in the paranormal research field, as well as my becoming a Paranormal Investigator.  I'm currently working on the 3rd and 4th Jacody Ives Mystery as well as a suspense novel and legal thriller."

    Authors Supporting Authors with Mr. Is Said

    in Self Help

    Mr. Is Said is an art form from the Continent of Africa. An author, mentor, community-based activist and educator, Is Said provides sage leadership on a national level and in the greater Columbus, Ohio arts community. He conceives, stages, writes, and performs unique multimedia arts events, combining visionary, historical-based poetry or prose synergistically with high-energy African music and dance.


    Is Said has traveled to Africa every year for the last 30 years. According Is Said, “Storytelling helps an audience to use their imagination and work together as a group. It stretches the mind beyond the sounds of joy and beauty. It is shapes of twisted information weaving a story and bringing the audience into your story.”


    Mr. Said usually tell stories that require a cast made up of member from the audience to act out the story. This gives the audience a chance to see and be right in the story as it unfolds messages of fun and history.


    “Storytelling is much like performing performance poetry: one uses their whole body to tell the story.”


    Minor rules of storytelling: Every story must have a beginning, middle, and an ending, characters, dialogue, location, place of action, moral, message, sometimes music, dance, animals, conflicts and conclusions. The most important thing about understanding a story is, using your imagination. 


    Is Said has written two short stories: Street Justice and Picking Cotton: A collection of our Elders lives and History called "The Table is Set”. Is Said has also written about 45 plays since 1973.
