Learn to write or refine a poem and then to perform in front of the group.



ASIA SAMSON is a renowned writer, poet and performer. Since 2009, The Asia Project has toured over 600 colleges with an acoustic music poetry act that has amazed audiences all over the country.  He has been seen on HBO Def Poetry Jam and has shared the stage with such artists as Janelle Monae, Jill Scott, DMX, Mos Def, Dead Prez and KRS-One.

"One of my favorite storytellers. One of my favorite poets. One of my favorite human beings. It takes a special person/writer to unfold a story as carefully and tenderly as Asia. At the same time, there's such an acute and ugly honesty he never let's us escape. Isn't that what makes a great piece of art? When so much has already tried to take our breath, his words offer up a vital aliveness--an inspirational nudge to keep it up/keep going--live! I'm grateful for our brother and all he offers to the world.
--Sunni Patterson (HBO Def Poet)
