There is no denying the power of the spoken word. The discourse we find society in today prompted me to sit down with Spoken Word Artist, Venus Jones, to discuss how to bring civility and inspiration back to the conversation. I believe you’ll learn something and enjoy this chat with Venus as she not only explains the history of the spoken word, but she’ll also demonstrate the power of the spoken word.

The spoken word is a form of poetry that often uses alliterative prose or verse and occasionally uses metered verse to express social commentary. The spoken word and its most popular offshoot, slam poetry, evolved into the present day soap-box for people to express their views, emotions, life experiences or information to audiences. Enjoy the performance and conversation with Venus.

It’s… (remind me, the word I’m looking for) indisputable. That’s right, the power of the spoken word is indisputable.
