Author's Bio

It isn’t fair to say Josh Smith is simply, a poet. For the uninitiated, the term conjures images of berets and bongos, rapping and rhyming, or pompous professors -- Josh Smith is the 21st century of professional poetry. Both an artist and an entertainer, Smith blends an Ivy League education with performance skills honed for over a decade in front of audiences across North America. And as Connor McGregor once said: he hasn’t come to take part; he’s come to take over.
