The Writer's Corner
Formed in July of 1995, The Writer’s Corner is a membership organization of poets and prose writers at varying levels of experience who meet informally to celebrate the creative process. At meetings they write and share recent poems and exchange information relative to the poetry scene. The group has self-published a number of collections of poetry that have afforded members the opportunity to have their work included in printed anthologies. Their newsletter, Metaphors, is distributed online.
The Writer’s Corner is available for performances and accepts honorariums. Special performance requests can be accommodated on many subjects. The diversity
program can enhance cultural understanding in the corporate workplace and our everyday lives. The History Pages and Renaissance Pagesbooks read well for Black History Month and Juneteenth programs. Father’s Day and Mother’s Day programs are facilitated by our book, Tribute Pages: In Praise of Women/In Praise of Men.The poets have a collection called Pages From My Childhood that reminisces their childhood experiences. (You may have noticed that all the WC anthologies have ‘Pages’ in the title.) Kwanzaa Pages is a book with poems dedicated to the principles of Kwanzaa (celebrated December 26-January 1). Comfort Pages is being considered as a future anthology project to inspire and heal with words.
Individual members write custom poetry for funerals, weddings, births, anniversaries, graduation...any notable occasion. They have bookmarks, cards and single poem
Laminates available for sale. Some poets have spoken word CDs for sale.
In recent collaboration with Pisces Publishing, four other anthologies have been produced: Peace Pages (dedicated to the tragedy of September 11th); Creative Juices (exploring the creative process for writers); Complexions: Celebrating African Americans (exploring color prejudices and celebrating color) with Hairstories (poetry on the humorous and cultural drama of Black women’s hair care); and Yes, We Can. Yes, We Did. (a limited edition tribute to President Obama).
The Writer’s Corner celebrates the rebirth of spoken word and invites other poets to share the poetry/writing experience with them. Please review subsequent pages for individual web pages with bios and products sold by individual members.
