... the other Black experience




Do not be bound by the interpretation of others. Your perception is costly, you pay the price.

Regret Nothing Write Everything was established by Shelly Bell in 2010.

Our vision for you:
Be bold about the stories you tell.

Be proud of the words you imagined.

Be facing your fears with unapologetic fire.

Be resisting the urge to be average.

Be making the world feel they know you.

Be smiling.

Be crying.

Be slouched when your body says.

Be watching.

Be listening.

Be talking out the side of your notebook.

Be present.

Be the self you own.

Be your own self.

Be kidding.

Be serious.

Be sticking your tongue out at life.

Be making bunny ears behind your fears.

Be absent when stress knocks.

Be your own Jesus.

Be your sanctified.

Be your love.

Be blank page.

Be unwritten.

Be uncrimp.

Be pulling yourself out of the garbage can.

Be what you know.

Be where ever you go.

Hello everyone 

I'm looking forward to hearing excessive amounts of poetry and really would love to be a part of moving it into a more highlighted art form. I want to see successful poets alive not hear about how great they were after they die and someone decides they're worthy enough to introduce to a curriculum. I also am a fan of tattoos, women, music, and motion. painting and writing are life.
