Poetry is not just Shakespearean sonnets or only in written form. This art has evolved into a vibrant, active and vocal movement!

While it is not a new art, it's now presented in a different way. Spoken word allows a poet to be involved with the audience and not just tell a story but show it.

This website was created to spread the spoken word artform, give tips on how to get involved in the art around the local Gainesville area and how to become a poet.

Learn a bit about the history of this unique, word-based artform, it's impact and join the movement. A good start would be a pen, paper and your loudest, most inspired thoughts.
