Brent C. Green is a free verse novelist and spoken word poet from Bryan, Texas, who advocates radical thoughts and honest questions expressed in unconventional styles. He began his poetry career while still attending high school in 2009 at Mic Check Poetry in Central Texas. Since then he has become a staple of his scene and a member of the 2011 Mic Check youth slam team along with the 2012, 2015, and 2016 regional teams and is the organization’s current acting writing director. In 2014 he graduated with a creative writing degree from Texas A&M and will pursue an MFA in poetry at Brown University next fall.

Brent is known for his earnestly hopeful view of love along with a pure notion of romance and marriage that is self-aware and never naïve. These topics are contrasted and melded with his defiant calls to action against nebulous and entrenched societal institutions told through stories stemming from his years of activist organizing and direct action.

Whether touring alone or with orchestral accompaniment, you will find Brent with both of his punk- rock-arms outstretched, his left a raised fist staring down injustice, and his right palm held as a warm offer  to anyone who desires a loving heart and voice to speak for them.

Brent has two published poetry chapbooks with a third forthcoming: Onus (2012), Protested Love  (2015), and Revolutionary Heart (spring 2017).
