Clientele: The Literary Arts Community
Quill Pen Ink Publishing, Founded In 2005
Home To The Cat Ellington Poetry Collection And The More Imaginative Than Ordinary Speech Volumes, Quill Pen Ink Publishing: The Beauty of Expression, Is An Independent Literary Publishing House That I Founded On November 10th, 2005 After Completing A Total Of (14) Productions - The First Of The New Literary Catalogue Being Titled, Sylvia.
The Origin of QPIP
In The Literary Branch Of My Creative Career, Which Came Into Being In July Of 2004 After My First Production Of Poetry—Eventually Titled, Sylvia—Was Sent To Me, I Had A Strong Discerning That The Poetic Work, Named In Honor Of My Great-Grandmother, Sylvia Hart, Would Not Be The Last. In Fact, It Would Be Only The First Of A Respectable Future Collection Of Poetic Productions.
Through My Literary Witness, I Expose What Is Truth; What Is A Lie; What Is Wisdom; What Is Knowledge; What Is Understanding; What Is Generosity; What Is Selfishness; What Is Sincerity; What Is Insincerity; What Is Faithful; What Is Unfaithful; What Is Love; What Is Hatred; What Is Strength; What Is Weakness; What Is Racism; What Is Bigotry; What Is Self-Love; What Is Self-Hatred; What Is Kindness; What Is Malice; What Is Peaceful; What Is Chaotic; What Is Compassionate; What Is Holy; What Is Unholy; What Is Righteous; What Is Unfair; What Is Light; What Is Darkness; What Is Free; What Is Bondage; What Is Straight; What Is Crooked; What Is Joy; What Is Sorrow... Every Emotional Aspect Of The Human Existence.
Basically, I Bring The Truth And The Light Through The Written Word. For In Such A Way Am I Utilized As A Creative Human Vessel.
And This Creative Literary Witness, Divinely Inspired As It Is, Was Not Intended To Be Watered Down, Dummied Down, Negatively Influenced, Controlled, Or Mismanaged. But I've An Obligation To Present The Witness In A Spirit Of Fearlessness, Boldness, Truth, Love, And Compassion.
Therefore The Body of Literary Work Was Prepared That It Would Be Published, Publicly, Without Any Third Party Influence Or Interference. And In That Regard, There Had To Be An Independent Publishing Company Established, That It Would Serve To House And Produce The Collected Works.
On Thursday, November 10, 2005, I Prepared Myself, Both Mentally And Physically, To Take On The Task Of Building Another "House". And After A Few Weeks Of Brainstorming Over Memorable Names, The Idea Poured Down Upon My Mental Person Like Refreshing Raindrops: The New Contribution Was Literary—Particularly In Poetry—So What Would One Associate With Poetry Writing? A Quill Pen!
I Quickly Jotted The Idea Down.
Much Like The BJMC And The CCA Which Came Before It, The Name Had To Be One That Would Sound Catchy As An Acronym. So I Began To Try On Different Names—Liking Some, Not Liking Some—But Still Unable To Come Up With Anything That Truly Fit Me. It Wasn't Until I Started To Ready Myself For Bed That Evening, Than Bam! The Unique Name: Quill Pen Ink.
Poetry Is Traditionally Written With Quill Pens Dipped In Ink, Right?, I'd Asked Myself. And After A Few Moments Of Consideration, The Name "Quill Pen Ink" Was Chosen. Its Motto Would Also Pertain To The Craft Of Poetry Writing: "The Beauty of Expression."
Quill Pen Ink Publishing, The Youngest Of My (3) Established Entities, Was Founded On Thursday, November 10, 2005. And Today, It's Literary Catalogue Exceeds Over Eight Dozen Productions Of Poetry, And A Series Of Nonfiction Books Titled Reviews by Cat Ellington: The Complete Anthology.
As The Sole Author Of It's Contribution, I Have Chosen The First Bundle Of Compositions For My Upcoming Creative Work Of Literature Titled 'More Imaginative Than Ordinary Speech: The Poetry of Cat Ellington, Vol. 1.
The Aforementioned Edition Will Be Quill Pen Ink's Very First Collected Release.
