The written word was never intended to go unspoken.

Edward has spoken at numerous churches, schools, and organizations regarding faith, writing, literacy, hope, and healing. Most events have a typical runtime of 60 minutes and include a full spoken word poetry set, stories, QA, and book giveaways. If you're looking for an engaging and encouraging poet for your next event, you're in the right place.

Edward Holmes was a dynamic and engaging speaker for grades 5th through 8th. He ensured that his presentation aligned with LPA’s vision of diversity, empathy, and commitment to reaching our goals through literacy. I would definitely recommend Holmes to other organizations and hope he will return to LPA in the future
