Poet’s Coffee Table Talk April 5 2021

Just like in the old days when poets came together, perhaps imbibed, or had some coffee, and talked about the problems of the world and how they would use poetry to speak their minds. This is a Coffee Table Talk.

We had a select group of panelists:

Susi Bocks

Chyrel J. Jackson

Maxima Kahn

LaVan Robinson

For this event, Susi Bocks shared about her anthology of poetry as well as some of the poets involved will share their poetry.

We also talked about using poetry for social change.

About Our Panelists:

Susi Bocks, writer/author/poet, has self-published two books – “Feeling Human” and “Every Day I Pause” and is the Editor of “The Short of It,” which she is developing into a anthology. You can find her work at IWriteHer.com or follow her on Facebook, where she invites you to read her thoughts to get to know her. Bocks’ work has been published in the anthology “SMITTEN: This Is What Love Looks Like: Poetry by Women for Women” and in VitaBrevis, Spillwords, Literary Yard, and other literary magazines.

Chyrel J. Jackson is a poet and artist who, along with her sister Lyris D. Wallace, published “Different Sides of the Same Coin.” It is a modern collage of poetry as experienced from the Black female perspective of 2 sisters and authors. This collection of poems is refreshing and unique. It is a heartwarming work of new age black voice and spoken word. This adaptation highlights the human experience of life, love, loss, parting and sorrow. Timeless wording, honestly written with a little of the unexpected. Black Expression has never been more relevant and real. This work is an interesting twist on Harlem Renaissance revisited as it collides with 2020 social struggles of our current time. In no short order we are reminded of why written and spoken word is so vital to the sustenance of African American Literature. Website: sistersrocnrhyme.com

Walter Stephen Geeding comes from a family of law-enforcement professionals. His father – was FBI; his great-grandfather – former City Marshall of Lanagan in McDonald County; his nephew – a detective in Newton County, MO, is now an instructor of criminology. 1999 through 2006 saw Steve serving McDonald County, Missouri as Elected Prosecutor. In 2007 he opened his solo law firm, W. Stephen Geeding, Attorney at Law, LLC. Steve was born in Washington D.C., but raised in southwestern MO, where his people and his roots are. He attended Missouri Southern State College, before going on to receive his Juris Doctorate in 1996. Steve is former president of Newton/McDonald County Bar Association, the River shares Committee, CRP Committee and Adult, Juvenile, and Family Drug Court. Currently, Steve is a member of Missouri Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, Missouri Family Law List Serve, a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association and the North America Hunting Club. Steve has resided in McDonald County for the last 33 years with his wife Linda. Their blended family has 6 children and 14 grandchildren. He has written and published a trilogy of fantasy and time travel, with a creational theme, based around actual events happening on Earth today. He has published a small book of Christmas poems and short stories. Steve is editing a fifth book, set in 1822 New Mexico, the first in a new fictional series of time travel, is working on the second book in that series, and is attempting to format a full volume of poetry amassed over the last thirty plus years. He has also finished a children’s book, which is currently being illustrated. Steve’s logo is the word Solitaire, in his words “a diamond in the rough.” Why Solitaire you might ask and his reply would be: Solitaire is my life, my logo. It is best explained by this: Born in Washington DC to an FBI agent, I moved back home to Missouri at an early age, grew up, married, more than once, raised my kids and bought a place on the river I named Solitaire. It has kept me sane and is truly my diamond in the rough.
