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 in 2009 at Mic Check Poetry in Central Texas. Since then he has been a member of the 2011 Mic Check youth slam team along with the 2012, 2015, and 2016 regional teams and was the organization’s 2015-2017 writing director. He graduated with a creative writing degree focusing in prose from Texas A&M University and is currently pursuing an MFA in poetry at Texas State. Brent is known for his earnestly hopeful views on love that are self-aware and never naïve. These topics are contrasted and melded alongside his defiant calls to civil disobedience stemming from his years of activist organizing and direct action. In his free time Brent enjoys playing Dungeons & Dragons, writing science fiction novels, fighting against fascists, exploring the night sky with his telescope, dancing at local emo-punk shows exorcising his demons, and touring the country performing for all who will listen.
