The E Project: Where did it start?

Great piece by #motownlit publisher and upcoming poet author E. Ethelbert Miller (Coming spring 2016)

A “pregame” chat with Kirsten Porter, editor of the upcoming The Collected Poems of E. Ethelbert Miller

When Ethelbert Miller asks you to help him with a project, you don’t need to stop and think about it before you respond. You don’t pull out your calendar to see if you can pencil him in. You don’t demand details and time frames. You just say without hesitation, emphatically—sign me up!

So when I received an email from Ethelbert last October asking if I would be interested in editing a book of his collected poetry, my answer was an immediate yes. It was after I hit “send” that I sat back and let sink in what I had just agreed to.

Local Author Debuts Story Collection That Reveals the Human Spirit

Open Boxes- the gifts of living a full and connected life by

Christine Organ

January 2015, Chicago, IL Blogger, freelance writer, and author Christine Organ releases a debut story collection that reveals the sacred through everyday living. Like a skilled weaver, Organ laces personal insights, anecdotes, and observations into a skilled tapestry of the human spirit.

Book Description

Through stories about everything from spirituality and parenting, self-acceptance and friendship, shopping at Old Navy and bowling with preschoolers, readers will be inspired to gently lift the lids off of their compartmentalized lives and tie together the torn and tattered pieces that lie inside in order to live more fully and connect more deeply with the people and world around them. Open Boxes is filled with stories of comfort, struggle, heartache, joy, insight, compassion, resilience, and redemption. Like a cup of coffee with a good friend, the stories will soothe and inspire, uplift and motivate, entertain and encourage.

motownwriters. com 2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 9,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
