WELCOME TO SPOKEN WORD NEW YORK!
Spoken Word New York will be your one-stop spot for information on some of the best and HOTTEST Poets/Spoken Word Artists in the New York metropolitan area. And where you can see them performing. This site will aid you in finding out who’s hot and who’s not, when it comes to Spoken Word Artists performing in NYC. It will highlight some of the up-and-coming artists as well as the well-known. You will get a first-hand glimpse into the creative minds of some of your favorite poets on the scene – learn what motivates them – and see how they make their poetic magic.
Be sure to CHECK BACK OFTEN for Upcoming Events, Art Performances and Open Mics that are being created for you throughout NYC. LEAVE COMMENTS on the posts you read, to interact with the Artists, Curators, Authors, etc., to let them know your thoughts. It’s all about positive-feedback and connecting! And Spoken Word New York is here to help you do just that. (If you would like to see your favorite poet, author or an event listed here, send an email with a “Request To See ___.” Go to the Contact page and email your request.)
From the Curator Spotlight, you get to know more about what goes into creating space and building platforms for the Artists. And learn the importance of having such platforms for the Artists as well as for the patrons. The Artist needs the patron. The patron can’t enjoy the art without the Artist creating and putting it out there. And the Curator contributes the space and opportunity for the Artists and patrons to get together under one roof (the Venue). It’s all about DOING what needs to be done to get the Artist and the patron connected. Artist + Curator + Venue + Patron = KEEPING THE ARTS ALIVE!
Spoken Word New York will be the first place you visit when you want to know the latest on New York City events. Our Upcoming Events lists: upcoming Open Mics, feature shows (that include Live Art and other art forms), book signings, author readings/release parties, and all types of Spoken Word/Poetry happenings in the 5 boroughs.
