    La Literati welcomes three talented writers and friends to our show

    in Books

    Join Niles and Tosha as we spotlight the work of three talented writers and celebrate the beauty of their words. 


     Debra (D.S.) Levy is a writer of short stories, flash fiction, and essays. She's had work published in the Alaska Quarterly Review, Columbia, Little Fiction, The Pinch, and others. Although she's never considered herself a "poet," she believes that whatever she's writing has always begun with a poet's concerns -- concision, compression, sound, and the desire to capture moments of being. Since blogging at C-Dog & Company, she has begun (shyly) to share some of her free verse.


     


    Geetha Balvannanathan Prodhom is an Indian writer born within a multicultural family and raised between India, Tunisia, Europe and the Middle East. She writes poetry in English, French and Arabic and has published a collection of French poems in 2011 with another collection of poetry in English to be published in 2016. A fervent admirer of the Japanese art of Tanka and Haiku since 2010 and writing her own Haikus in English, French and Italian since 2014, she also writes short novels in English and in French on the themes of human feelings and interaction. She is currently working on a manuscript in English depicting the varied life she led.


     


    Christian Marc is a writer and blogger born in New Jersey, who lived in L.A., but is currently moving to Seattle. He is a two time recipient of the Montgomery Burns Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence.

    Haiku Poems Part 2 : A Short Poem Can get you thinking too!

    in Poetry

    Welcome to Life From all Sides. This show is about exploring life from every angle. You can't examine anything by looking at one side.


    Today's show is about poetry.  We create what we love and this is a new form of poetry for me.  It is called Haiku.


    A haiku poem consists of three lines, with the first and last line having 5 moras, and the middle line having 7. A mora is a sound unit, much like a syllable, but is not identical to it. Since the moras do not translate well into English, it has been adapted and syllables are used as moras.  From (http://examples.yourdictionary.com/examples-of-haiku-poems.html)


    This is my second attempt at this great art form.

    Nature as a Conduit to Connection with Kim Weiss & Edie Weinstein

    in Self Help

    How did a long awaited love relationship launch a book about the romantic images of sunrises and sunsets?


    Join Edie as she chats with Kim Weiss, author of Sunrise Sunset:  52 Weeks of Awe and Wonder


    As a photographer, Kim had become fascinated with the views of sunrises and sunsets from her 14th floor terrace and snapped pictures of them. It was when her partner John surprised her with haiku that he wrote to 'paint word pictures,' to highlight them that a brilliant idea was born. The book incorporates her images, as well as quotes by notable writers and teachers, sharing how they are moved by this simple and profound daily occurrence. She invites people to take their own photos and share them on her Facebook page, using nature as a conduit to connect people all over the world.


    Kim has been in the book industry for many years and coaches other writers aspiring to be bestselling authors. As a storyteller, Kim has contributed to the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, The Ultimate Bird Lover and Arielle Ford's, Hot Chocolate for the Mystical Soul.


    Edie Weinstein, LSW is a colorfully creative journalist, inspiring transformational speaker, licensed social worker, interfaith minister, BLISS Coach and the author of The Bliss Mistress Guide To Transforming The Ordinary Into the Extraordinary. She calls herself an Opti-Mystic who sees the world through the eyes of possibility. www.liveinjoy.org
