Spoken word poetry incorporates the verbal performance of a writer’s work with the words themselves. The inflection, intonation, and pace of recitation, among other things, are conscious decisions a poet makes to evoke a range of emotions that help bring the piece alive. Write a poem meant to be shared out loud, or transform an old one, and upload a recording. Need inspiration? Amanda Gorman, National Youth Poet Laureate, shared her spoken word poem, "The Hill We Climb," at the 2021 Inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
