Amena and Missi's Podcast: Here for the Donuts

What Makes a Good Spoken Word:
If you are doing spoken word you should know where that rhythm comes from.
Spoken word, when it is best done, is good story telling. More showing than telling.
Spoken word should engage your senses. Tell me what it smelled like with your words.
You should have the combination of being a good writer and being a good performer.
