What You Need to Know About Me:
I'm a native New Yorker. I moved to the Washington DC area after I graduated from Syracuse University and after living there for 8.5 years I moved to Dallas, TX where I resided for 3.5 years before moving back to the DMV area. I'm published in 5 anthologies which include, "Gumbo for the Soul, Here's Our Child Where's the Village and Women of Honor--Special Pink Edition edited by Beverly Black Johnson, How I Freed my Soul, Liberated Muse edited by Khadijah Ali Coleman and Have a Little Faith and the upcoming book Keeping the Faith edited by Vanessa Miller."

I have been in the nonprofit field for thirteen years serving in capacities such as after school programming, grant writing, creating partnerships and leveraging resources for smaller non profits so they can succeed.

My creative writing influences are authors and poets such as Zora Neale Hurston, Sonia Sanchez and Nikki Giovanni. My Mother and Grandparents have also encouraged me to go after my dreams and passion to write. I always give praise to God for blessing me. My other influences are my godchildren that really help me to imagine and dream to create children's stories. My friends and the wild stories I hear on a daily basis is the foundation of my fictious novels that have a lot of reality in them.

I'm also the founder of Divine Wryte Creations, Making Words into Art. Founded in 2007 I create and sell poetic products such as framed poetry and bookmarks. I'm currently working on poetry and fiction books which will be availabe on my site as well. You can go to my website at http://divinewryte.blogspot.com to purchase.

On the side I assist small nonprofits with strategic planning, budgeting, program development, partnership and collaboration building.

My expertise in the nonprofit world and my creative writing solutions will help you to build a foundation and wealth for your organization. Working nationally I know I can assist you with the many challenges facing the philanthropic changes.

God bless

Let Freedom Rain

This is a piece I wrote on election night 2008. A client of mine has a 16x20 frame of this piece hanging up in her foyer to keep her inspired. Be blessed and let's stand behind our President!

Let Freedom Rain

History is HIS-STORY

God’s breath that created everything we see

Obama said you want to be on the right side of history

And be a leader by showing your people what you’ve built and not what you can…

Silenced by Cancer

Greeting BAS Members. I hope all of you are blessed and creatively doing what you love to do. My last update was in the summer shortly before my mother Marguerite "Sauti" Wills was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer. She was told that it was already at stage 4 which is advanced as it spread to her stomach as well. The following six months consisted of her being admitted to hospitals and rehabs, my family coming together on one accord and me traveling up…

Hey Serena!

So sorry ... I'm just now peeked in and saw that you left a message. As you already know, I did not attend OCBF's writers event this year but I pray all walked away full of purpose!

hello Serena

just stop by to share my art

5683 *

I will speak my heart, my emotions true
so that my very words will bring joy to you,
my desire to give passion a new name,
I will speak them sweetly
to the one who has set my desire free,
they will burn like a raging fire
for every moment to have you surrender
the sweetness of your love to me,
I will caress the very essence of your soul,
I will become a slave to love
call me passion and I will fill your every moment
every time you call out to me

SPAM IS SO NOT COOL!

Please do not greet everyone on the site with large images and announcements of your book or business. Yes, you want to tell the world, but learn the fine art of subtlety. A simple welcome and signature/link is fine. Let them ask you for more.
We have lost numerous members because of the amount of 'friend' mail they instantly receive. This Hurts Everyone.
Spam is unsolicited advertising, whether it is posted as comments on other members' pages or is emailed for marketing purposes.

Please be considerate. Post your advertisement in the proper Articles/Forum or Group. There are free classifieds on the Pages tab. You can post your information on your profile and even update your blog as often as you like.

We are not into censorship, so please don't make us ask you to leave. Be kind and unselfish - don't spam.
SPAMMING IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED
