#MotownWriters Author Feature: Desiree Cooper #Michlit @descooper

Desiree Cooper

Detroit, Michigan, journalist and author, Desiree Cooper, has released her wonderful book of poems and prose with Wayne State Press called Know The Mother. A beautiful literary work of art that will touch the soul.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

While a mother can be defined as a creator, a nurturer, a protector-at the center of each mother is an individual who is attempting to manage her own fears, desires, and responsibilities in different and sometimes unexpected ways. In Know the Mother, author Desiree Cooper explores the complex archetype of the mother in all of her incarnations. In a collage of meditative stories, women-both black and white-find themselves wedged between their own yearnings and their roles as daughters, sisters, grandmothers, and wives.

In this heart-wrenching collection, Cooper reveals that gender and race are often unanticipated interlopers in family life. An anxious mother reflects on her prenatal fantasies of suicide while waiting for her daughter to come home late one night. A lawyer miscarries during a conference call and must proceed as though nothing has happened. On a rare night out with her husband, a new mother tries convincing herself that everything is still the same. A politician’s wife’s thoughts turn to slavery as she contemplates her own escape: “Even Harriet Tubman had realized that freedom wasn’t worth the price of abandoning her family, so she’d come back home. She’d risked it all for love.” With her lyrical and carefully crafted prose, Cooper’s stories provide truths without sermon and invite empathy without sentimentality.

Know the Mother explores the intersection of race and gender in vignettes that pull you in and then are gone in an instant. Readers of short fiction will appreciate this deeply felt collection.

MWN Blog Archive Help The #Michigan Metaphorical Melee #fundraising via @deonteosayande #KnightsArtChallenge

I’m currently in the fundraising stages of producing The Michigan Metaphorical Melee. What that is is a biannual four part festival dedicated to poetry in the state of Michigan. There will be a team poetry slam featuring teams from 8 different cities in the state, a theatrical production where poets will be directed into both writing and performing their own parts in a play, workshops for writers and performers, and a showcase for local poetry publishers and writers.

https://www.patronicity.com/project/the_michigan_metaphorical_melee#/

In November I was one of the Knight Arts Challenge winners with the Knight Foundation last year and in order for me to receive the grant that the foundation is awarding me for this project I have to match the funds in the amount of $4,000. This online fundraiser is one in a series of efforts that will acquire that funding match. The online fundraiser is aiming for only $1,000 to get enough to secure the venues for the festival and to lock down specific dates for the event. There is more information at the link that I’m posting in this email. I know you said to include pictures so I added one of the logos for the festival and one of me in case people want to know who is behind the project.

Thank you, I appreciate if you’re able to share it and I think it will be a phenomenal addition to the literary community in the city and statewide.

    Special Guest :

    Kelly Greene hails from Detroit, MI. He noticed a gift for writing while attending
    Detroit Lutheran West High School. When he wasn’t involved in football or

    notes. Years later after losing his Job at American Axle where he worked 14yrs, he
    rekindled his passion for writing. While getting his degree in computer electronics
    from ITT Tech, his talent for writing was discovered by his composition instructor
    Ruth Klayman. She immediately suggested that he go into professional writing.
    Shortly thereafter he started the blog hollaifyouhearme.com where he writes
    about his love for the City of Detroit. He has also just launched his new site
    iamkellygreene.com

    He is a member of the Motown Writers Network and the Detroit Chapter of the
    National Association of Black Journalists (DC- NABJ). He was also given the Titan

Willow Launches Weeksville Summer Arts Residency

Check out Willow Lit Summer Residency!

“The Future of the Arts, with an Eye on the Past.” That’s the motto for Willow’s grand vision for its upcoming decennial (okay, that’s still a strange word to me–i.e., Willow’s 10th anniversary). Watch for announcements on our upcoming multidisciplinary Arts Residencies. Our new era kicks off with the first-ever Weeksville Summer Arts ResidencyJuly 27-29. This will be a one-of-a kind experience, with master classes, craft talks, readings, and performances, and a tour of the Hunter Fly Road Houses of Weeksville, a 19th century African American community of founded in 1838 in Brooklyn, New York.hunterfly

After years of putting on events, it started dawning on Randall and me exactly where we’ve been hosting, especially after the LitFest in Chicago’s Bronzeville. Somewhat unconsciously, we’ve been centering our events in locales that have cultural and historical significance. I know it was probably rooted in me in my early years with the Detroit…
