NY Writers Coalition Press is proud to present Madonna a poetry collection by NYWC workshop member Donna Gayle Fleming.
“Born in Kings County Hospital on May 3, 1957, Donna arrived to this world an observer, to a clan of exceptional women. Her mother collected degrees to become a dedicated educator of Brooklyn’s children while her grandmother tended to Donna’s spiritual garden. Donna composed her first pieces of poetry on walks home from Sunday service. Always with a bright serious mind, she excelled in her studies and watched life’s unfolding. Words came to her early in life. Imagination did also. But home in childhood she did not find. By the time she was making decisions for herself, the light and dark notes of life’s music were composing her direction. She was dancing.” – Colleen Pierce Breslin, NYWC Workshop Leader
