I am very friendly and enjoy the writing process. My full name is Ross Edward Silke. My books are now available on Amazon under my first and last name (and some listed below full profile); on sale for Christmas. I really appreciate the community here and learning from others. I enjoy the outdoors, nature, walking, puzzles, and my Alienware laptop with very advanced computer graphics and games. I live by myself in a cozy apartment with white walls and red-cherry doors.--Always Christmas. :0))

I hold firm beliefs in and act out Christianity and my poetry reflects that. I am a Shilohnite with Shiloh Fellowship Church online in Phoenix, Arizona. During the year I work for the Salvation Army, and I am currently still working on my undergraduate degree in Classical Studies; the study of Greece, Rome, and their art, architecture, history, and languages.

I hold a diploma in Writing for Children and Teenagers from the Institute of Children's Literature. I also have a Premium TESL Certificate with honours for teaching English as a second language. Moreover, I have several diplomas from Shaw academy including English for business. Furthermore, I am an Ontario scholar with honours in high school graduating in the top of my class with several Ontario Academic Credits (OACs) with English being one of my highest. I have also taken degree work toward Theology I began after high school, then after taking some time off, transferred to university from a seminary. So far my university courses accumulated at Queen's where I've studied include honours in Greek, Latin, and Creative Writing. As well as, I have taken, politics, classics, a number of writing courses and German.

Ross E Silke: Sorry I am away over the Christmas holiday season right now, but rest assured I'll be back soon. I'm still writing and have two new books being published at this time on Amazon you can look for under my first and last name: The True Story of Christmas: The Real Story, and Santa Plans to Retire, a short story book for all ages. God bless you this Christmas! Warm hugs. Also, look for Christmas Eve Sonnets by the Fireplace 1-3 now available on Amazon. :0))

Ross E Silke: I was recently accepted into Tyndale with a scholarship to finish my education. The award was quite unexpected for all the work I've done to date. Very excited; in the English and Bible Studies/Worship and Creative Arts. I hope to fulfill my potential in the coming years in the field of arts, writing, teaching, and education. Have a very merry, beautiful Christmas!

    Ross E Silke: Thank you! I'm very excited. :0)) It's hard to find a good institution that's founded on the Word to study at as previous institutions I have attended are not making it difficult to be successful in.

Ross E Silke: I'm happy to announce that I completed a Certificate in Academic Writing at Queen's University in Canada where I have been attending. I took courses in Effective Writing, Creative Writing, Modular Writing, and Literary Non-Fiction to obtain this. I'm concluding my time at the university now after many years and leave with this to help with my writing endeavours. I felt to share.

Ross E Silke: Summer is a time to celebrate in the sun and rhyme up some summer salad poetry. :0)) I'm sure in a month we will want the summer to go away and embrace Fall and Winter again; until then, write in the sun! Best,

Ross E Silke: Am I allowed to announce this? I'm so excited that I made my first ever book sales this week after publishing on Amazon.--I didn't think they would really sell so it's very encouraging. I much enjoy the writing process and will keep working toward bettering myself and my writing as I find it opens up a whole new world apart from the natural world we so often get consumed in. Thanks for all your help.

Ross E Silke: Poetry is a great way to heal in writing from the heart, and then it is contagious when we share it to help others. When we're facing life challenges and circumstances, poems can help overcome them and conquer our mountains. In a way, it is like a weapon that fights to heal our soul and gives us more control over life's ordeals.
May 9, 2019 at 7:23AM
    LG Wolfe: Very well said Ross. I completely agree.
    May 9, 2019 at 7:58AM
    mrsmajor: From my own life experiences, and my poetry, I most certainly do agree with you..
    May 9, 2019 at 5:14PM
    Ms. Snyder: Well Mr. Silke that in itself was poetry... a nice free verse!

Ross E Silke: Writing is a way to heal the mind and soul; we write to help ourselves then we want to display it for others to read, thus passing on the torch. But we should always write with others in mind too so they can best understand us, after all the writer has the most information, but often times we forget that the reader may not know. Author notes are handy for that as well. :0))

    Ross E Silke: Thank you, Poet monster. Spring is a new season of joy for all of us. :0)) It's fun writing about the season as there's so much to explore.

Ross E Silke: I find writing poetry is a great way to battle through life's harder days and to even gain some authority over life's cares by writing about them. It doesn't have to be perfect but writing gets the emotions on paper and clears the mind and heart. It gives us courage to face life, our poems.
