"My advice to new authors; Read, Write and, Wait" - Countee Cullen

So, if you would rather not deal with the hassle of website design/hosting, and just want a place to showcase your best stuff, than let us be your canvas!

Our goal is to bring a more Holistic & Complete sensory experience to Digital Storytelling; to present a story that's Heard and Seen and felt by the recipient. That's how, we believe, a story should be told.  That said,

The site is leaping & bounding, and we are actively seeking both Content (stories) and Providers (writers like you)!  We'll respond as soon as possible to any and all, but there is a bit of a backlog, so please be patient ~ Now, go read a Story!

Countee Cullen (born Countee LeRoy Porter; May 30, 1903 – January 9, 1946) was an American poet, novelist, children's writer, and playwright, particularly well known during the Harlem Renaissance.

I chose to present this, a poem he wrote after visiting Baltimore (c.1911). I thought it apropos.

 

Incident

Once riding in old Baltimore,
    Heart-filled, head-filled with glee,
I saw a Baltimorean
    Keep looking straight at me.

Now I was eight and very small,
    And he was no whit bigger,
And so I smiled, but he poked out
    His tongue, and called me, "Nigger."

I saw the whole of Baltimore
    From May until December;
Of all the things that happened there
    That's all that I remember.

CHARM CITY KINGS

Fourteen-year-old Mouse (Jahi Di’Allo Winston) desperately wants to join the Midnight Clique, an infamous group of Baltimore dirt-bike riders who rule the summertime streets. His older brother, Stro, was their top rider before his tragic death—a loss that consumes Mouse as much as his passion for bikes. 

Mouse’s mom (Teyonah Parris) and his police mentor, Detective Rivers (William Catlett), work overtime to help the charismatic teen reach his full potential, but when the Midnight Clique’s leader, Blax (Meek Mill), takes the boy under his wing, the lure of revving his own dirt bike skids Mouse toward a road way past the straight and narrow.
