Poetess at work
I won an award from The Academia for my spoken word piece, “Gimmee Money.” Dubblex and I collaborated on the music for this. I wrote the words. Below is the list of winners in all categories plus a link to my song. I redid for the submission.
This is what their judges wrote on the website. When you go to the website above -2nd link, you will see it plus right below you can listen to the song.
'Gimmee Money’ calls on shiveringly intimate spoken word talent and a funk-infused beat to leave a vital impression with the listener.'
Currently at work on The Cartier Street Review and Street Literature Review, I am production editor for both. Writing is breathing. My writing ability is a mitzvah, I am the instrument. Writing is my love, the finished products are my offspring. I need it to live, to survive - it's my water, my air, my first love. Some say I'm not "a real poet" and accuse me of being post modernist. At open mics I have been thanked for my heartfelt style and others have mimicked me. Long ago I decided to take that as a compliment. About being post-modernist, I only began to read other post-modernists after I'd been accused of being one. The thrust of my prose is on the harder sharper issues that cut us to our core.
