Spoken Word Workbook
Explore the history of spoken word and oral story telling traditions as you work your way through this collection of insightful and instructive essays, poems, and exercises. We have invited twenty-seven top professional spoken word artists to each submit three interactive exercises intended to explore specific facets of the art of spoken word. These exercises address history, writing, and performance—and will help lead the reader/participants on a creative journey of self discovery.
