A Love of Words
I’ve been involved in organising a few gatherings of storytellers, writers, readers and spoken word artists.
They’ve included a broad range of ways of telling stories, short and long, loud and quiet, simple and complex. The main objective has been fostering a love of words in young and old.
Incidentally, spoken word is a term that includes any kind of poetry recited aloud, including poetry readings, poetry slams, hip hop, etc.
