VIP with Dominique; From A Writer’s POV coming to a close

Happy Friday, this is a special edition of VIP with Dominique.

Yes, you read the title right, From A Writer’s POV is coming to a close. We’ve been going strong for almost six years now and the time has come for us to move on to bigger and better things. From A Writer’s POV has not gotten the support I was looking for over the last 6 months. It has also taken a back seat to other things myself and the team are busy with. We’ve come to the conclusion to close From A Writer’s POV. This April Edition will be the last edition.

Our team is also letting From A Writer’s POV go to make room for an even bigger project that will come to light in the near future.

We thank everyone that has been apart of our project throughout the years. We hope that these same true supporters will be around when we’re ready to launch our next project and be an even bigger blessing to other writers and authors.

We realize that is is because of us, so many authors have found the strength and courage to publish their work.We thank you for allowing us to be apart of making your dreams come true.

On a personal note, I will continue to mentor authors and writers through Literary Career Moves and this blog, The POV Lounge will remain active. I still have a love for helping those in the literary field. Although POV will no longer be in service, I will still be here to help you with all of your career needs!

Thanks! Here’s to moving on to bigger and better things. Cheers!

Poet of the Month; “Painting a Spectrum of Poetic Hues”

There is something to be said about a poet’s tenacity when it comes to writing. Their drive to do what comes naturally to them makes them the unique individual that they are. If you paint a canvas black, one poet will envision a whole separate perspective by looking at it than a poet who sees another world on that same black canvas. Paint a canvas in chocolate, and you have the perspective of MaDonna Awotwi, aka Sankofa the Poet.

Our Poet of the Month resolves that her canvas is demonstrative. Her perspective on that canvas is in her poems. “I am an emotional writer, so often something that has happened to me personally or someone that I know, or what is going on in the news will sit in my spirit and compel me to write.” And when MaDonna writes, it is often an explosive demonstration of an artist’s paint strokes of their inner vision. “Words come to me in flashes; often times I can sit straight up out of my sleep and produce an entire piece.”

When writing her book of poems Life on a Chocolate Canvas, MaDonna’s tenacity took her to a deeper shade of brown, as she gave herself a means of constriction to show the literary world that she means business. “Life on a Chocolate Canvas is compilation of poetry I’ve written over the past several years. I was 29, just 2 months from being 30, and I felt the need to publish my poetry that, in order to make my mark on the world, I had to do it before my birthday.”

Business Owner of the Month; “Graphics with Je’Designs”

Jennifer Wilford is not only an author, she is also a business owner. Owner of Je’ Designs. The company has been in business since 2006, offering the services of Custom and Urban Graphic Design and Business Identity. Customers can get in contact with Jennifer for her services by emailing: je@jecustomdesigns.com  or by calling 888-872-7129.

“I experienced a challenging time when I arrived in Dallas from Louisiana.  I asked God to give me a gift only he could, that would allow me to bring in extra money to survive.  Mind you, I have no professional schooling for this talent other than what God blessed my hands with. I took a few classes at AI, but that was just fundamentals.  I also didn’t have any immediate family in Dallas. God spoke to me, and he gave me the vision of what Je’Designs is today; from the name of the business and which people to market my gift to.” Jennifer says. “My ultimate dream is to become a full time celebrity graphic designer in the entertainment industry that travels.  So far, I have created graphics for Rickey Smiley. He played a big part in getting my name out there…he gave me a chance.” WOW!

I asked Jennifer about the pros and cons on being in this business. “The pros are you actually get to meet a lot of people.  When you target entertainers and artists, you meet all kinds of people, but it also comes with different types of attitudes and mannerisms.  The only downside I see in what I do is that in becoming a graphic designer, you become very critical of not only your own work, but others.  I find myself looking at other graphics and finding flaws.  I promise it’s not intentional, but it just makes me work harder at what I do to be the best.  I’m constantly reading and learning.”
