Fire Lit: The More Than Metaphors Podcast

I am excited to announce my new podcast will be launching soon! I have been incubating this idea since summer 2019 with an anticipated launch of November 2019. "More Than Metaphors" is a virtual love space for those poetic and poetic-ish voices to examine the question: What happens when we find the courage to live our poetry out loud? A conversation led by Author, Educator, Entrepreneur and Poet Dr. Kecia Brown (“Dr. Kecia”); More Than Metaphors combines guest interviews and posts from Dr. Kecia’s blog which focuses on transformative learning, love, justice, and liberation. Each episode of this podcast will provide encouragement for leading more meaningful, spirited and poetic lives.
