Hello, Thank you!
William "Endlesswill" Davis is quickly becoming a recognized name in Spoken Word Poetry. He was born and raised Grand Rapids, MI and does much of his work in North Carolina. Emeritus Poet Laureate of Hillsborough, 2022 ArtPrize Contemporary Black Artist recipient, Coast 2 Coast Live mixtape winner, four time published author, host, and most importantly a father. As an artist, Endlesswill embraces community and specializes in poetic social critique, introspection, and depth. He uses personal narratives to discuss the politics of race, class, gender and religion. While simultaneously pinpointing and reinforcing the interconnected nature of human existence through poetry.
I am a spoken word artist who is dedicated to continuing the tradition of poetry in living form. Founded in a belief that creation and expression is one of the most valuable attributes gifted to humanity. I like to use writing to examine the spectrum of the human condition from a holistic point of view. Ambitious in my craft and presentation, I offer audiences unforgettable performances that evoke thought, introspection, and connection as a community.
I was appointed the Hillsborough Poet Laureate for 2016-2018. The ceremony was held at the Hillsborough Arts Council and took place on July 1, 2016. Since 2013, I have helped create platforms for poets to share their work throughout Hillsborough and its surrounding cities. I have also placed amongst the top artist in North Carolina at the Coast to Coast Live artist showcase that was held in Greensboro, NC in May of 2016. I have been fortunate enough to be acknowledged in the News of Orange, Chapel Hill Magazine, Princeton University, NC State University, George Washington University, Blue Cross Blue Shield, RedBull, and many grade schools throughout the US.
I have also presented my work in a Michigan Art Contest, ArtPrize, where I was awarded the Black Contemporary Artist award. My most recent publications are Broken Perception, Falling Apples, and Lost Poems. Through the pandemic I have expanded my talent by typing poems for passerbyers on demand on my 1967 typewriter. This exchange inspired him to continue to purchase and repair old typewriters, now he has over 15 working machines that he uses to teach writing at schools and his local farmers market. I have typed over 20000 poems in the past year and half, sharing my work at Book Festivals, Colleges, Coffee Shops, Weddings, and everywhere I am welcomed.
A father of three amazing children. My goal is to build for their foundation, each poetry opportunity sets ground work for their life to be better than the day before. My kids are also visionaries and artist, my stride is to set a standard for them to one day stand on their own.
I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. #Alwayspoetry
