Informal greeting

Now that we've got the formalities out of the way, my name is Allen Minor. I am a member of the veteran performance poetry group called The Combat Hippies, as well as a member of the spoken word poetry venue Breaking Bad Poetry. Aside from my work with those two groups, I also branch out on my own under the pen name A.S. Minor. Articles and other works pertaining to my work can be found in section entitled, "Press."

As a spoken word poet, I am always looking for opportunities to spread the message of Post-Traumatic Growth to the general population, regardless of the venue. For information about booking, or to just reach out, please head over to the section entitled, "Contact." 


[A.S. Minor] invites us to take a journey into the depths of his mind. What we find is not only insight into mental health issues such as Borderline Personality Disorder and the impact of Post-Traumatic Stress, but that life brings both ups and downs, and that we must embrace both to live it to the fullest. [His] work is the definition of Post-Traumatic Growth.
