Testimonials

”I have followed the growth and inspirational development of CCIQ Press for quite some time – I am proud to be a judge for the incredibly innovative Poetry Olympics and I am constantly impressed by the breadth of diversity and creativity that CCIQ Press supports and promotes…”

Georgia Melaris, Author

It is with enormous pleasure that I am part of the first-ever Carnaval de Poésie. When I was accepted as the main sponsor, I felt a sense of pride in appreciating the diversity of content. As you all know, I am an author, and there came a time I really did get writer’s block. For a while, I just could not put pen to paper. Then I met an amazing lady named Rania. We talked for hours and her encouragement and belief in me and the support she showed me began to wake me up. I felt the urge to write again. She was able to motivate me so much, that I am almost finished with my sequel novel to Daniela, and also a third novel which was born from Daniela. I would call her at all hours of the day and night and sure enough, she would always answer giving me that little push I needed to keep going. This woman has empowered me and even when we are not speaking, her words are heard in my mind loud and clear and I just keep ongoing.
