“P.O.W. -- that's what you captured, woman, that "seeing your worth in your lover's eyes" in the erotic/spirituality of the poem. Keep on writing and sharing, please ... You got the flow!”

“Awesome!, Poetic, beautiful, sexy, steamy and SO vivid! Ok how long you gonna hold us on the TBC? I'm a fan!!!”

“Oh my God! “When I rise in Mooring” is amazing. The imagery and the texture. The rhythm. Wow. I love the way it combines a sense of the old with the new. Like a timeless ancestral dance.”

"Would you harbor me", has opened my minds eyes to the beauty of embracing a fellow sister, despite her circumstances, the words are like ointment on a wound, just so beautiful.

“This prose “7 Simple Pleasures” is filled with so much emotions and passion all at the same time that I wanted to stop reading but my mind pulled me to each word like a magnet. This is grand hun. You should consider a novel, part fiction and non-fiction. I truly enjoyed this read.”

“Whew! Only got half-way, had to take a break. but dayuuuuuuuuuuuum Sis!”

“One look at the cover of Poet on Watch (P.O.W.), and you know you're in for something different. A sepia-toned photo of P.O.W. is flush left; words pour over her face as she looks out into the world; to her right is the title of the book. It looks more like a movie poster than a bookcover - but then this is no ordinary book.”

“P.O.W.'s (Poet on Watch) home-brewed women's film festival has been active since the former NBC videographer decided to jump ship and strike out on her own in the name of women's film making. This being Austin, she knew the best way to do that was by creating her own fest from scratch,although the Blowin' Up a Spot! Film Fest has resided in several other Texas cities, notably Houston, before coming to rest at the Carver Museum in Austin.”

“As a filmmaker, who has just begun to send my short film out on the festival circuit, and whose work was presented in Blowin Up a Spot! festival, I know all too well the pain of rejection and the difficulty filmmakers, and especially filmmakers of color, have in finding an appropriate venue to show their work. Blowing Up a Spot! represented the perfect festival home for my short film The Book of Ezekiel. Not only did my film receive a great deal of attention through the promotional efforts of the organizers, but the festival also provided a direct connection to my intended audience, the Women's community and the African American community.”
