Spoken Word

Spoken word refers to oral poetic performance art that is based mainly on the poetic as well as the performer’s aesthetic qualities. It is a continuation of the ancient oral artistic tradition that started in the late 20th century and focuses on the aesthetics of recitation and wordplay, such as the performer’s live intonation and voice inflection.

A poetry slam is a competition arts event, in which poets perform spoken word poetry before a live audience and a panel of judges. Culturally, poetry slams are a break with the past image of poetry as an elitist or rigid art form. While formats can vary, slams are often loud and lively, with audience participation, cheering and dramatic delivery.
