He is a two-time published poet and the author of the works Archway and Two My Sisters. His writing can be found in the New York Writers Coalition Black Writers Journal as well as the Eastern Iowa Review. Nathan has a long history with writing but recently set his feet on the journey to smear the world with the color of his words. He is a passion filled writer, wringing words of their last drop of emotion. He creates poems that you can call home, providing somewhere you can fall apart or fall together whichever suits your soul. Join the journey.
