I'll Have a Medium, Please ---The Spoken Word! 

What is spoken word poetry?

"Spoken word poetry is poetry that is written on a page but performed for an audience. Because it is performed, this poetry tends to demonstrate a heavy use of rhythm, improvisation, free association, rhymes, rich poetic phrases, word play and slang. It is more aggressive and “in your face” than more traditional forms of poetry."  

Join host Juanita Richburg Seon and Intern Erika Shoemaker as they talk about "The Spoken Word" Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 5 p.m. (EST)
