The Spoken Word

My good friend, Ellie Winslow, who blogs at Minding the Middle Aged Middle sent me a link to this video:

It’s poet Shane Koyczan, telling his marvelous “This is my Voice,” at Words Aloud 2007, in Canada. I found a copy of the lyrics written out here at a peace of conflict.

I forget the power of the spoken word until I hear it.

The video is also over at wimp – a new service to me. There they have a link to WordsAloud – a Canadian based poetry, spoken word and storytelling festival. Makes me want to go.

They’ve got a free study guidenot exactly a how-to, it is, I think valuable for any writer wanting to know more about how to move people with words.
