by LaTisha Un’ Spoken Holloway

Breathe Deep & Think About it… Is a gateway into the mind and the heart of the woman whom you have all grown to love. It is an instruction book, and if read backward it would lead you along the path that has made Un’ Spoken.

This book of poetry is Filled with words and phrases that describe the life story of the very person who is still living it…

LaTisha C. Holloway – Cassell, was born on the Southside of Chicago Illinois, to Shirley Holloway and Robert Scott, on March 25th, 1981. In 1989 after years of continued drug use, the man know to her as “daddy” gave up fighting his drug addiction & left the home and his family. Latisha was only 8 years old at the time. Her mother, now faced with raising two (2) young children alone, fought hard to not buckle under the pressures. & it was during this time that Latisha’s pen found her.

Years of struggles past, and she unknowingly grew into her talents & faced many oppositions along the way. She often found her self-fighting to choose the arts and not the world. In the summer 1998 a place called “The Underground” was opened on the south side of Chicago. & In Latisha’s opinion this was one of the best things that could have happened to hip-hop and the open mic, because this was when Latisha (known to her peers then as Knowledgeable) found her voice.

Using Spoken Word as an outlet, she was finally able to release the frustrations that uneasily & without permission, settled inside of her. She eventually began to feel like she had to speak, so she began making it her business to speak about everything that everyone else was afraid to speak of, she figured: “why speak if your words have no real effect on the people who hear them”. & now reflecting days to come & realizing the tasks that lay ahead, she changed her name to “Un’ Spoken” & coined the phrase: “My words are not spoken until I speak, but because I know that I’m chosen, I now invite God to speak through me”.

Over the last 14 years LaTisha has dedicated her voice to change. & at the age of 32, Unâ?? Spoken has finally found peace in knowing that her suffering, her tribulations, her pain and tears, were never for her. & in the midst of it all she’s has found a way to turn her backstory into a story filled with favor, grace & victories. She understands now that “what the Devil meant for bad, God always, ment for good”. Outside of being the host & creator of numerous tv shows, radio shows, concert series, open mics, & showcases. She has also appeared in short films, such as “Book Em”. She’s won many poetry slams. She’s performed on stages from Seattle Washington to New Orleans Louisiana, & more recently, she’s become a two (2) time nominee for the Chicago Music Awards, in the category of Best Spoken Word Artist/Poet. Un’ Spoken is the owner of Get Soul Graphic Design & Marketing Agency, a wife to 1, a mother of 3, a mentor, a community advocate, a youth leader, a daugther, a sister, a friend to few and an ear to many. She is the self proclaimed voice of hope for the unheard.



Cars Crashed In Charcoal Cities

by C S Hughes

C S Hughes again traverses the sublime to the ridiculous, skirting deserts, wrecking cars, taking damage. From brief amusements, to moments of stark, poignant beauty, scarred wreckage, twisted metal, tension held in a droplet, a bird dying in hand, some sketched in stark and minimal brushstrokes, others in grand and outlandish Guignol. Different pieces touch on subjects as diverse as modern romance, Gothic horror and Saturday nights.
Includes the poem/essay “Restaurant”, which, through truck stop signs, red deserts, symbolist and romantic poets, with all seriousness forwards the Theory of the Preposterous, in which the postmodern unmakes modernity, and leaves us all in a state of joyous ridicule.

by S.E. McKenzie
