Welcome to the world of "LEFT HANDED THINKING" says actor, writer, comedian, poet and author J. Steven Williams. He was introduced into the world of poetry by former co-workers who formed a performance group called '2 Brothers & a Sister'. The group reached out to J. Steven Williams because of his acting skills and creative thinking. Him being the only one not writing poetry he focused on monologues, that is until one night at a show promoting a member's book, he saw a spoken word performance that not only kept his attention but also inspired to write. He went home and wrote his first poem. when he went to rehearsal, he was encourgaed to write more. 2 months later the group took him to "Hottest Poets" a slam competition in Harlem New York, first night out he won. He had the same outcome his first time at the Wednesday Slam at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. 13 years later, he is not only a well respected poet, he is also the founder of Untamed Talent, a collection of artists that use spoken word poetry as their platform to not only give back to the community, but also address issues from the communities they come from and world wide. As "Tha Real" his raw, gritty, aggressive style of poetry has not only been on display at slams and poetry shows, but also on CDs, Music Albums, Charity Events, NAACP & N.A.N shows and the list goes on, currently his is also one of 11 poets in "WORD PLAY" an anthology published by Bravin Publishing.
