SPOKEN WORD CLUB
WRITTEN BY EVA SZOCIK & MADELYN DRURY
The denotation of something like Spoken Word sounds different from every person you ask. When asking people on the team, you may realize how passionate and determined those speakers are to share their work with people who want to listen.
Safa Jaber, a freshman on the Spoken Word team, shares her definition as “a form of creative poetry in which specializes in customizing each poet's style, technique and rhythm.” The Spoken Word team itself was thoughtfully described by Safa as full of, “such kind and fun people” where “all the work is original, [where] I love sharing time and competing… It’s such an amazing feeling”.
So, why does this matter? Why should someone join spoken word club? “If there’s a poet that likes...original pieces shared, looking for something new or is just ready to hear and even share their work and meet new friends- all of that and more will be accomplished in spoken word.”
The preparation recommended for anyone wanting to join was simply put as “drink water, [keep] writing poetry, and open [your] ears”. Does that sound about right, spoken word team?
