Zana Seymour aka Nakia Jade Interview Smooth Jazz

Zana Seymour aka Nakia Jade was interviewed by Greater Augusta Arts Council Director 
Brenda Durant on her weekly radio program, Augusta Arts Council Weekly.  
Seymour shares her background and how she came to become a poet. She discussed the collaborations with Hire Grounds Cafe and ILMC literacy project. She even shared a poem she wrote! We at Poetry Matters Project are so proud of Zana and the contribution she has made to the CSRA community and Poetry Matters Project. As we bring Women's History Month to a close I offer another young woman to watch.  Nakia Jade. We thank Brenda Durant and Greater Arts Council for showcasing another woman of color!

Women's History Month Post

 I attended the Deckle Edge Literary Festival for the first time this year. The keynotes were Nikky Finney and Terrance Hayes. Did a quick search of what Ms. Finney was up to. What I found can be seen here. Nikky Finney and Appalachian Culture.  We celebrate Nikky Finney and all the great women writers.
