We are women writers in Herstory and should not be belittled by men as “scribbling women”. Any writer if they are a good writer should just be considered a good writer. I remember my poetry successes but the failures or the “no’s” I got from publications I sent poems or essays in to were rejection of my work not personal. I remember learning http://www.nami.org did not take all the poems or stories that they received and feeling good about the two essay I had published on http://www.nami.org since July 2013.
I am a Black Guyanese woman in my late 30s. I went back to college to take Early Childhood Education classes. I want to get a second 48-credit BA degree in Early Childhood Education by 2021. I go to NJCU. I have a BA in Creative Writing from NJCU. I graduated from NJCU in August 2015. I transferred to NJCU from Mercer. I have my AA degree from Mercer in Humanities and Social Sciences since May 2007. I write poems, I write memoirs, I'm a blogger and I am taking a children's writer course. I love reading memoirs and I do book reviews from time to time. My favorite poet is Emily Dickinson. I grew up in Ewing, New Jersey. I live in Princeton Junction with my parents!
