Jeremy A.R Davis
New York, New York
Jeremy Davis is an emerging Urban Contemporary writer who also teaches and enjoys working with young people, but his truest passion is exploring and getting lost in the world.
His personal writing style has been described as conversational, and according to The Trinidad Guardian is effective in advancing his plots.
He's been published, featured and reviewed in literary journals, newspapers, and magazines- including Barbados Today, Moko, Caribbean News Now, What's Up Caribbean, Caribbean Vibe Radio, The Trinidad Guardian, as mentioned, The Guyana Chronicle and countless others.
The Release, his book of 'poetry and other works' is intended to inspire 'smiles' and 'cries', and 'oohs' and aahs' and nudge young writers into experimenting with their work and gently pushing the boundaries of true self-expression through writing. He's also the author of Painting from the Heart, a novelette about a Bajan Rasta painter, and My Mother's Son- a highly controversial philosophical book based in Trinidad and Tobago.
Much of his work seeks to examine the place of the Caribbean man, or the Urban Contemporary Youth and debates themes of love and the 'afro caribbean' identity, but he also writes on lighter themes as well.
Jeremy Davis loves to travel to write, and divides his time among Barbados, Guyana, the U.S and China.
In addition to his own work, he edits the new Literary Magazine I-Am Poetry Project, and intends to work to help young people utilize Creative Writing as an uncensored, therapeutic form of Self Expression. He is most interested in discussing with Schools and Universities about Writer-in-Residence programs, and businesses and institutions, around the world, about potential speaking or workshop engagements.
"Poetry is a wonderful thing! It allows you to clear your mind of the thoughts that are forcing you to reconsider, and pursue your goals in a beautiful way. Learn to use poetry."
