The Writers Block 6th year anniversary celebration and open mic this past March was wonderful.  It was a small and intimate gathering where the Writers Block paid tribute to our former beloved member Isis Origi Nile. There were performances and lots of great memories shared about Isis Origi Nile.  Heru Arkhet shared, Naomi Wallace Baxter, Deborah "The Dictator' Chainey mentor and founder of The Precious Promise Arts Circle reflected on her memories of Isis, Makizworth, Cynthia Blue, Burt Miglino a PPAC player, Erik Spector, Drew Patch, Arnette Phipps, Jaz, Aisha Crawley, Susan Miller, Guests two guests of Cynthia Blue shared a poem or spoke of the memories they had of Isis. She was a great person with a good heart.  She will continue to be missed but her memory, gifts and talents will continue to live on. Until next March when we gather again to honor her memory cont to RIP Origi Nile! Gone but never forgotten!
