Phillip Berrian was born on February 10, 1976 in Brooklyn, New York. He currently resides in Valdosta, Georgia. One of nine children, where out of the fruit baskets of apples he went and graduated from Kingsborough Community College and earned his Associates degree in Arts and Sciences. He is an author and poet who has written 20 books. The first to be published is entitled “The Testimonial of One’s True Greatness.” It is available in eBook and hardcover and you can find it on Amazon and through his self-publishing company of Infinity Publishing on http://www.buybooksontheweb.
His ambitions and the God given talents that only He Himself could give and bestow, let Phillip clearly say that poetry was a spiritually anointed as well as a God given gift. He’s earned the highest honors and respect, and received two Editor’s Choice Awards from the International Library of Poetry from 2005 and 2007. Other poems were acknowledged and got much buzz from the Famous Poets Society, where he also received award-winning plaques with official gold seals of excellence from the top head Chiefs and Editors. Likewise, Phillip was presented the gold seal certificate of excellence and was listed in the Celebrate-Created Communication POETS SPEAK OUT 2007 with a poem titled “A MAN.”
Phillip received another Editor’s Choice Award, his third one from World Poetry Movement for Outstanding Contributions to Poetry. And in August of 2011, he was featured on two online poetry blog websites, poetrycrazy.com and voices.net.com. On top of that achievement, he was also presented with the blue honorary ribbon for featured poem on the sites. A Certificate of Publication with a gold seal of Achievements, from World Poetry Movement, was from the same online contest that had recently presented unto me The Best Poets and Poems of 2012 Award. In April 2012 during The National Poetry Month he was also given, by both the Awards Chairman and the Chief Editor from The National Poetry Month Committee, the Prestige Great Poets Across America Award Certificate with the United States seal logo.
