My name is Christopher D. Sims, also known as UniverSouL. I am a poet/spoken word artist/lyricist, educator and activist who lives and writes/recites to educate, uplift and spread peace, love and harmony through my gifts.


Background Information

I've been a writer/creator and/or thinker all of my life practically. Poetry/expression has always been a natural part of me. My major influences are life itself, love and the Universe that surrounds us. I have a deep passion for life, love and Beauty and these things are definitely the breath of my poetical works. Beauty can be found in many things and I show this through my poetry.

Birth Place
Rockford, IL U.S.A.
Accomplishments

I've been awarded as a poet of the millenium by the National Poets Society who published my poem "Without You" in an athology. The poem was also nominated to compete for there grand prize.

I am currently the Poetry Slam champion of the Rockford, IL's First Night, which is an annual New Year's Eve celebration to bring in the new year with music, food and entertianment. I was also a featured act there where I performed a unique blend of poetry and lyrics to live instrumentation.

In the Spring of 1999 I was invited to perform at the Ritual Theatre Festival in Oakland, California and in the Fall of 2000 I was invited to perform in Brooklyn, NY in its annual Wordstock- the literary equivalent to Woodstock.

My poetry has been featured in various websites and/or webpages across the World Wide Web. My work has been featured in the highly respected literary website Fyah.com and others. Others include Poems For Nubian Women and HistoricalConnections.com.

As of recent I was Wordsport.com’s “Poet of the Week” for the week of October 28th thru November 4th of 2001 and I've been featured in FYOS.com (Find Your Own Shine) as a “Poet To Watch”.

My work has also been featured in Njozi magazine and Opinion magazine.

I've performed in various places around the U.S. and abroad such as Memphis, Tennessee's Preciuos Cargo and Sidewalk University (now Kemet University) where I got my start, in Houston, Texas at several venues, in Chicago, IL at the birthplace of Slam poetry the Green Mill and here in Rocford, IL at various places, readings and poetry Slams.
I performed in Toronto, Canada in December 2001 in "When Brothas Speak": A poetry venue held anually in Toronto, Canada by Toronto's premier poet/performer Dwayne Morgan that broke a record for venues without a main or known act with over 500 people in attendance.

I am a proud member of the Prolific Writers Network which is a nation wide network of authors and writers of all genres.
