Spoken 4 All

Austin's spoken word performers take center stage as part of KLRU's focus on the arts. Also known as "slam poetry," spoken word is an oral performance of extemporaneous or composed pieces of free poetry. Austin has a number of venues that present spoken word, this program highlights the ranging styles of poets at an all-age program hosted monthly at Mitchie's Gallery. This event features several artists who were involved with the Austin Neo Soul Team that placed 4th in the 2010 National Poetry Slam.
