Will Holmes Jr.
(Lawrenceville, NJ)
Having performed at several talent shows, poetry readings, and special events at school and clubs during his college years, Holmes is pretty familiar with the poetry scene.... Holmes' poetry began as rap, which transformed into spoken word and written poetry by the second half of his freshman year. Untaught, it soon became obvious that what Mr. Holmes had, was a gift. And once he found out that his poetic skill was a gift, "I knew I had to use it to help glorify God and try to influence people in the right way," he says. His inspiration for writing comes from his personal experiences, thoughts, and feelings.
