Both Slam-based poetry as well as readings of more experimental poetry have been supported by Living Arts for 40 years. There are two categories of Spoken Word: Audiences over 50 people and under 50. Events like: The Living Arts Poetry Slam, Love & Lust and Earth Rhythms, have established themselves while five other curated Spoken Word events are still gathering steam.
The group also coordinates a periodic Living Arts Chapbook that is sold to help promote Spoken Word in Tulsa. It fulfills our mission by helping present contemporary art in youth and adults. Mia Wright is Chair of the Living Arts Spoken Word Committee.
