Media Make #4: Spoken Word Letters

A spoken word letter can express a personal experience with an election issue in a way that a written letter cannot. Spoken word combines the power of poetry with the power of performance. Your emotion about an issue is conveyed not only in words, but also in your tone of voice, facial expressions and body movement as you deliver your poem. So, let’s hear it. What do you want to say to our next president?

What election issue impacts your daily experience the most? Write and record a spoken word piece that captures your story.

Post your media on YouTube or SoundCloud, then share the link onTwitter using the hashtags #MediaMakeSpokenWord and #2NextPrez.
