DaRell Pittman aka “Da Green Lantern” is a performance poet who resides in San Antonio, Texas.

He has won competitions that named him the “City of San Antonio PuroSlam Champion,”

“San Antonio Erotic Slam Champion” and “Haiku Death Slam Champion (twice).”

69 of his literary works have found their way into publications and awards.

This husband, father and grandfather believes in the power of words to change the world.

“They can calm and soothe. Arouse and stimulate. Devastate and demolish …

OR … inspire and elevate.

Words are the vehicles that move civilizations and directs humanity.

The written word is the closest thing we have to making ourselves immortal.

And that,” says DaRell Pittman, “is a powerful concept.”
