Book Review – “Different Sides of the Same Coin”

You can listen to the review of this wonderful book on the Prolific Pulse Poetry Podcast

AND it is also viewable of YouTube. I am amazed with this book, the more I hear the poems, the more I read, the more I am emotionally charged with an awareness. Chyrel J. Jackson spoke at the recent Coffee Table Talk about social justice. Her message was spot on and prolific. I highly recommend this book. Two sisters, two different styles of writing, two passionate poets, who bring it more than 100% They are a formidable force and I suggest that you pay attention to them. These ladies are meant to be heard. Check out this YouTube for my review and there’s an Amazon link should you decide it is a must have in your library.

Book Review – Juntu Ahjee’s “Ebonology”

Poet Talk with Lisa Dailey by Lisa Tomey Prolific Pulse Poetry Podcast

Lisa Dailey is the owner of Sidekick Press in Bellingham, Washington. Her indie publishing house focuses on memoir, anthology, poetry, as well as selected works of fiction. What started with a handful of poets writing COVID-19-related poetry and the effects of being in quarantine during National Poetry Writing Month in April quickly evolved into a desire to combine the works into an anthology. Red Wheelbarrow Writers’ third publication and first book of poetry, This Uncommon Solitude, was published by Sidekick Press on October 15, 2020. This Uncommon Solitude captures the myriad and diverse experiences during these times of quarantine and the COVID-19 pandemic. For many of us, poetry has helped connect us, one to another, as we share experiences and insights, express our grief and sadness, fears and pain, gratitude and hope. Encouraged by poets Susan Chase-Foster, Victoria Doerper, and Joe Nolting, typical prose writers in the Red Wheelbarrow Writers’ group took up the challenge to harness their inner poets. This Uncommon Solitude is the result of a true collaboration, created with tenderness for a tender time in history.
