Giving an opportunity to be voiced is one of the main achievements of Louisiana Words. Vincent Pierre Cheramie attended Louisiana Words/The Series:Redemption and asked if he could read some stuff he had written. He blew the audience away. At 18 years old, Vincent's writing style shows maturity and awareness. He tackles the issues of the New Silent Majority Generation (please google this) that has evolved. To show self-expression and fearlessnes at this age is remarkable!
Harvey LeBeouf, the 8th accomplished Louisiana Words Allstar and the 2nd quickest writer to rise to this status since 2015, has brought in the most followers than any other writer in the history of Louisiana Words since 2014. He has racked in the most #1 poems and been consistently in the top 3 for Best of Week since Winter 2019. He gained Allstar status quickly having many poems under his belt with many more to come! A native of Kaplan, 27 people have joined the community ranking Kaplan at #6 in the top 10 places following. Yes! Kaplan the 1st rural town to beat out larger places like Shreveport (currently not in the top 10). Now living in Lake Charles, Harvey has also brought in 19 followers for Lake Charles ranking them #10. Both places are currently listed on the Louisiana Words Tour coming in the Winter 2020. Thank you, Harvey!
