    Joy Keys chats with Poet Afaa M. Weaver

    in Current Events

    In 1951 in Baltimore, Maryland, Afaa Michael Weaver, formerly known as Michael S. Weaver, was born to working class parents. He attended public schools and graduated as a National Merit finalist at the age of sixteen. After two years at the University of Maryland, he entered the world of factory life alongside his father and uncles and remained a factory worker for fifteen years. These years were a literary apprenticeship during which he wrote and published poetry, short fiction, and freelance journalism. During that time he also started 7th Son Press and Blind Alleys, a literary journal.
    His first book of poetry, Water Song, was published in 1985 as part of the Callaloo series. He received a NEA fellowship for poetry six months after signing the contract for the collections and left factory life to accept admission into Brown University’s graduate writing program on a full university fellowship, where he completed the MA with a focus on theater and playwriting. Concurrently, he completed his BA in Literature in English through Excelsior College.
    Since Water Song, Weaver has published several more collections of poetry, including The Plum Flower Dance: Poems 1985 to 2005 (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2007); Multitudes; Sandy Point; and The Ten Lights of God, all of which appeared in 2000. His full length play Rosa was produced in 1993 at Venture Theater in Philadelphia under a small-Equity contract. His short fiction appears in Gloria Naylor’s Children of the Night and in Maria Gillan’s Identity Lessons.
    Weaver has been a Pew fellow in poetry and taught in National Taiwan University and Taipei National University of the Arts in Taiwan as a Fulbright Scholar.
    At Simmons College in Boston, Massachusetts, he is the Alumnae Professor of English and director of the Zora Neale Hurston Literary Center.

    Biggest Looser Sweden Trainer to West Hollywood Sensation

    in Fitness

    Exciting and passionate are two words to describe Tanja. After that you have to find your own words if you can.


    Listen to her and I promise the hour will pass faster than you could imagine.


    This personal trainer for the Swedish version of Biggest Loser is one mighty little package.


    “I was born to move!” says Tanja Djelevic, who started her life’s work in fitness at a very young age when she started dance lessons. She’s never looked back and now enjoys an enthusiastic following – from celebrity clientele including Matt Dillon and Rachel Weisz, to students who flock to her high-energy classes at Gold’s Gym, Crunch Fitness and Equinox Fitness Club in the Hollywood, Calif., area.


    Tanja studied at the prestigious Swedish Academy of Fitness Education and holds a masters in psychology with emphasis in stress management therapy and behavioral life coaching, as well as fitness certifications from Reebok, AFAA, ACE and Powerhouse Pilates.


    Tanja’s Gaiam workout DVDs draw on her range of expertise in disciplines including Pilates, BalanceBall / stability ball, kickboxing, aerobics, interval training, body sculpting, functional fitness and more. Born and raised in Kristianstad, Sweden, she was a resident fitness columnist at Swedish Cosmopolitan and coauthored of the health coaching book “Livskraft” (Life Force). The work closest to her heart includes founding the Loud Teenz health education and self-esteem program for pre-teens and teens.
