G. Yamazawa / Press

“'On the road to finding glory, there are fighters and there are survivors. If there were a barrier between the two, I’m sure we’d find G. Yamazawa on the fighter’s side. Completely abolishing the complex of “barely making it” the work ethic and the constant come up of this young wordsmith is beyond profound. I strongly advice you to be a follower of Yamazawa, not only for his honest work and the beautiful word decision he makes stanza after stanza, but also for his constant gratuity, his sincere presence and his continuous hunger for the betterment of himself and others alike as the years grow. Definitely a poet’s poet.'”

“With Japanese descent in his blood, G was born on November 16, 1990 and raised in Durham, NC. G is a proud son, brother, grandson, disciple, student, employee, artist, emcee, and poet. His immovable faith in Buddhism is the platform to the fortune he has accumulated, helping him awaken to the potential that’s been inside of him since his first breath. He has been raised by the most beautiful poetry community in the world, and without it, he is nothing. He is humble, yet confident. Indecisive, yet ready. Tired, yet vigorous. He will never be defeated, and will keep an Ever-Victorious Kansai Spirit in his heart until the day that he dies. In 2008 G traveled to Washington, DC for the Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Festival as the first major poetry event in his life. Since then, he has competed with youth and adults on a national level.”
