SpokenWord involves performance-based poetry that focuses on the aesthetics of word play and story-telling. It often includes collaboration and experimentation with other art forms such as music, theater, and dance.

SpokenWord usually tends to focus on the performance of the words themselves, the dynamics of tone, gestures, facial expressions, and more. Read more about SpokenWord poetry here.
