about the poet
Kenneth Woods, AKA “KennyFresh,” is a spoken word artist, writer, poet, and published author. He has performed in the Midwest as well as in various states throughout the U.S. His well traveled experience as a child, Hawaii born with naval parents, influenced his ability to adapt, refocus, and reconnect. Ironically, that is what his writing service and performance art company, Refresherpoint, is all about… refreshing perspectives through the power of words, language, and art.
His spoken word has traveled also, and has been featured at an international conference in Athens, Greece. You may have experienced his poetry on the radio, through televised collaborative performances, or in person at a range of award-winning venues, non-profit organizations, and academic institutions.
As an Indiana University graduate with a Bachelor of Science in biology and an Associate degree in chemistry, his love for science and poetry provides a distinct performance-art experience. His prose is a compilation of humor and satire intertwined with faith in humanity’s potential and most esteemed, his Creator.
As an African American author, his works are influenced by his experiences and explores themes of: mental health, belonging, intercultural identity, place, and human connection. He has been given immense opportunities to impart his spoken word poetry, community engagement, and writing services to intimate crowds of 10’s to auditoriums of over 3,000.
