We want to share with you a very special person
and a very good friend of VoicesNet.
We would like to tell you about Jennifer Ehidiamen,
who is one of VoicesNet.com's International
Since we started this new program a few months
ago, we weren't sure where it would go and how
it would proceed.
Well, we now think that we know where the program
is heading thanks to a recent correspondence
that we received from Jennifer which included
the above photo.
Jennifer is from Nigeria on the African continent.
She is a very special person, as we have found
out through countless email discussions with
her. As we hope that the Ambassador program
inspires many involved, including the Ambassadors,
to do some wonderful literary deeds, we have
found that Jennifer has inspired us to take
VoicesNet and all of our programs to great levels
of literary accomplishment.
Here is what Jennifer has accomplished. She
has set up a VoicesNet affiliate group in Nigeria
called the "Creative Ambassadors Community".
She has inspired many of her countrymen to get
involved and to spread the word of poetry and
literature in general throughout the Nigerian
countryside. She is taking this group and having
them go to different events where she is talking
about VoicesNet and what we are trying to accomplish
in the world with Poetry and writing. She is
also reading poems from our own VoicesNet Ambassadors
Portfolio of wonderful inspirational poetry.
Additionally, Jennifer is coordinating the publishing
of many of her countrymen's poem in a special
publication that will only include authors that
she has inspired to pursue writing goals. We
are working out details for VoicesNet to handle
the actual printing responsibilities for this
new Nigerian publication through our VoicesNet
publishing capabilities that we use for our
VoicesNet Anthology International Poetry Competition
and also for our new Self-Publishing activities.
Now we must pick our proverbial jaw off of
the floor because we are so truly inspired and
flattered at the same time with Jennifer's duties
as a VoicesNet Poetry Ambassador.
To all of you very aspiring authors out there
reading this article, please be inspired by
Jennifer's dreams and goals and notice how she
is making them happen. Jennifer has a huge desire
to inspire those around her and now through
this E-Zine, I want to give her a chance to
inspire all of you to tackle your dreams and
never think that you can not accomplish anything
Jennifer, we dedicate this edition of the VoicesNet
Visions Literary Journal to you and your fellow
Creative Ambassadors Community poets from Nigeria.
Way to go!
