So What
Will You Write About?

Spoken Word Poetry
Drive: Picking a Topic
What's important is that you care about what is being discussed. Sometimes it's personal and sometimes it's an area of interest.

Example: I care a lot about violence against womxn and human rights.
Core: Spoken Word is Free Verse!
The only important thing in Spoken Word is having a rhythm.
You don't need to rhyme.
You don't need to be fancy.
Feel free to use metaphors, similies, imagery, etc.
The more you can connect emotionally to your poetry, the more the audience can understand you.

"If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself." - Albert Einstein.
