THE ART OF SPOKEN WORD POETRY
BY DARRELL MITCHELL II
Helpful tools, tips, and techniques that can improve your spoken word poetry performance. The goal of this book is to provide a “How to” guide with principles that can be used to improve content and stage performance. This book doesn’t come with the promise of making you a great spoken word artist or the experience of a world famous poet. Instead it provides tools, examples of techniques and it offers tips, which if practiced correctly, can improve your confidence, focus and execution. Every artist comes equipped with their own amount of creativity, imagination and inspiration. Storytelling is a big part of spoken word poetry as well, but if you are not able to tell that story or relay a message clearly to people then there might as well be no one listening.
