“What Challenges Face Spoken Word Poetry”


HOST: “What challenges do you think face Spoken
Word Poets? What is probably the top three most challenging
things?” A.S. MINOR: “Getting it out there. A lot of people will see poetry, see the name
poetry, or hear the word poetry and they immediately think that it’s Shakespeare, or something
of the sort, so they won’t even give it a chance.They don’t want to click on that video,
they don’t want to open that book, or whatever. And, so, I think the biggest challenge is
just getting people to give it a chance. And I know that if they did, if they were
to click on that video, if they were to flip over the page, immediately it would touch
on–like I said before–that core part that we all have in common.”
