DC's Poetry Community has suffered a great loss. Venus Thrash was a wide smile, a generous spirit, and words filled with fire. We will miss her presence in all the spaces she inhabited and will do our part to keep her memory alive.

Women Are Poetry In Motion -- Every Day in Every Way Feb 27, 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM EST online event Register for Women Are Poetry In Motion -- Every Day in Every Way at www.estherproductionsinc.com/events-1/women-are-poetry-in-motion-every-day-in-every-way This 60-minute writing workshop is designed for adult women to learn more about poetry writing techniques but also to become more intimate with their own personal stories and history. Led by award-winning author and performance artist Joy Jones, participants will also come to understand and appreciate the power of poetry to heal, inspire and provide an opportunity for celebration of self, family and community. “Joy Jones is a trainer, performance poet, playwright and author of several books including Private Lessons: A Book of Meditations for Teachers; Tambourine Moon, which was selected as one of the best books for children by the black caucus of the ALA and featured on the Bernie Mac Show; and Fearless Public Speaking. She has won awards for her writing from the D. C. Commission on the Arts & Humanities, and the Colonial Players Promising Playwrights Competition, plus awards from both the D. C. Department of Recreation & Parks and the D. C. Commission on National & Community Service for outstanding community service. Joy Jones’ provocative op-ed on marriage trends for The Washington Post, “Marriage is for White People”, went viral. She is the director of the arts organization, The Spoken Word, and the founder of the Double Dutch team, DC Retro Jumpers, which has led exhibitions and classes throughout metropolitan Washington and abroad. Joy often leads workshops on creative writing, communications and black history.” Esther Productions, Inc. is a Washington, DC-based national nonprofit organization.

Leave me alone Ring I met a Woman. A really beautiful Woman Smart great conversation I was polite Keeping social distancing At times just nodding Looking at her speaking hands I focused on her ring finger She noticed my glance and my reticence at pursuing this interaction She announced Oh this This thing This is my leave me alone ring. For those Guys I don’t want to encourage Don’t want to be Involved with Don’t want them do***ng me. I felt great knowing that the leave me alone ring wasn’t for didn’t apply to me. So fellas I’m asking have you ever seen or been the victim of a Leave me alone ring Ha I think I’ll get one my self! Afrofuturism Symbology Afropop jmcrooms 11.29.2020
