012 Summer Showcase: April Joy Bowden
April Joy Bowden is a graduate of Virginia State University. She has worked as a photographer for the past sixteen years.
As a child and young adult, April wrote many poems, short stories and comics. She has always known that becoming a published author was on her ‘to do” list. In 2010, “HIGH-On Love & Addiction” was released. “The Other Side of Joy” was released in 2012.
Combining her love for the arts and entertaining, April has spent the past few years planning events. Most recently, she has hosted several multi-author book signings using “out of the box” ideas and locations.
“The Other Side of Joy” is a collection of poems that deal with the emotions and passionate moments we experience in relationships; joy, pain, intimacy and ecstasy. You will find rules for dealing with each emotion. Each poem will allow you to laugh, cry, feel or wonder just how one can live with or without joy in their life. Do you remember your first kiss? Do you remember your first love? A special place that always makes you feel good? Can you recall having your heart broken? Or how you felt when you had to tell someone goodbye? Take this journey to reminisce on past or current relationships through poetry.
