One of the hardest working young poets I know is Sean Hill. I first met him seven years ago at a poetry event at Cal State Northridge. As long as I’ve known him, he’s been doing poetry for Skid Row Youth Programs, as well as several literacy programs, literary festivals and theater showcases. Hill recently hosted the Success is Our Future Scholarship ceremony, and worked the past two years as part of the After School Adventure Enrichment Camp (ARC) at Oscar De La Hoya Animo, teaching Poetry and Theater. He also co-hosts with Roger Chagnon, Jason Brain, and Dutch Stowe a blogtalk radio show called, “The Soapbox Super Show”. They play music, comedy, and poetry from their recordings of the Thursday night open mic, Soapbox Sessions in Encino. Jason Brain is the host and creator of both Soapbox productions and a close comrade of Hill. Hill, who just released his first spoken word album, says, “I share ideas that involve inner reflection, outer connection, and a gradual delicate diving into the notion that realistic inner and outer world peace exists…sometimes just by allowing yourself to truly believe it.”

If YOU Want To Share Your Own Testimony
of AWESOME to help spread more inner and outer peace through POETRY!
Hey lovely people!!!
I am now accepting & editing testimonies to compile for future events and shows
at everything from conferences and colleges!
Set your camera or get a friend to focus on so you feel like you’re really talking to someone,
make sure you have a cool and symmetrically nice background that won’t distract us from your awesomeness
then take your time answering these questions in at most 5 minutes:
1. What is poetry to you?
2. How has my poetry impacted you personally?
3. What do you think my poetry can do for the world?
4. Tell me why I should keep sharing spoken word poetry!
I absolutely appreciate you doing this and please be SINCERE in your answers, have fun creating this and doing this how you like, you can ask your friends and family to do it and if they haven’t seen me, share my videos with them if you like and record them RIGHT after or even secretly record them while they watch your favorite video!
I always appreciate more people discussing poetry and the hard or massive topics they contain. I firmly believe we can all elevate ourselves and each other through the reflecting power and insightful help poetry provides…not to mention it’s amazingly fun to create entire universes where you get to roam free inside your imagination…it’s like a comic book for your insides.
Much love and see your AWESOMENESS SOON!
