Derrick's website:

Derrick C. Brown first discovered poetry in a foxhole when he was enlisted as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne. He is the winner of the 2013 Texas book of the year Award. Brown began touring nationally with his poetry after his honorable discharge and has performed at over two thousand venues and universities, including national and international literary festivals such as Berlin Literature Festival, Glastonbury and AWP. He has toured with poets Anis Mojgani and Buddy Wakefield in the spoken word sensation known as the Poetry Revival, and with poet and actress Amber Tamblyn in a re-occurring show, The Lazers of Sexcellance. Known for blending other art forms with poetry, a short film for his poem “A Finger, Two Dots, Then Me” won over 40 awards on the 2012 film festival circuit. In addition, two years ago, he wrote a poetic play titled Strange Light, commissioned by The Noord Nederlands Dans Group in Holland. The piece was performed by 14 dancers and accompanied by a live orchestra using music composed by fellow Americans, Emily Wells and Timmy Straw.
