"I write for the same reason I breathe — because if I didn't, I would die. — Isaac Asimov
Tavis Brunson a.k.a. “The Minister” is a native of Columbia, SC. He began writing in high school around the age of 15, starting with raps of a secular nature and received high grades on English assignments when he exercised his poetic gift. While attending college in Atlanta, he began writing on more Christian subjects. When he moved back to SC, he turned his talents to songwriting for budding gospel group, Complete. After that, he took a hiatus from writing for a few years, except for the occasional poem here and there.
He moved to Orlando, FL in 1999 and in 2002 his writing was re-born from great spiritual and emotional trials. In finding this new voice, his writing evolved into a spoken word style and he first performed this new work in church. At the urging of some friends, he attended his first open mic in Orlando; he was very well received and it was on…his spoken word career began.
He was a 3 time member of the nationally ranked Columbia Poetry Slam Team (www.ColumbiaSlam.com) , 2006 Southern Fried Champions. He was also the 2006 Columbia Grand Slam Champion.
