Keisha's New Book is Here! Please Lend Your Support

November 20, 2014

I'm very happy to announce that my debut book of poetry will be published in a few short weeks! I am eternally grateful for the support and encouragement you all have given me over the years. It means more than you can imagine.

Between working full-time, obtaining my M.F.A. in Creative Writing, and raising two children…this book has been a long time in the making. I want to celebrate this milestone in a big way--but I need your help.

Gathering the Waters was selected by Jamii Publishing from over 100 manuscripts, and includes poems that have appeared in Renaissance Noire, Mosaic Literary Magazine, Small Axe Salon, The Mom Egg, Streetnotes: Cross Cultural Poetics, Multilingual Anthology of the Americas Poetry Festival, and several others.

My goal is to raise $5,000 to cover the cost of a Jan. 10 book launch party at Imagenation's Raw Space, located in Harlem, NY.

With your help, I can cover the cost of the space rental, event photography/video, DJ, cultural performance (drumming and blessing), drinks, food, etc. Plus, a minimum $25 donation will get you a signed copy of the book and entrance to the celebration (with an RSVP).

This is an important step in my life and I want to share it with you. Click on the image at the top of the page to learn more about how you can contribute and the gifts that come with your donation. Or, click here to visit the IndieGoGo campaign page. And please, share with your friends!

All my love. Thank you!
