Rochester Spoken Word is an organization for writers in the Rochester region who want to have their work heard. Whether you’re looking for feedback on something you’ve already completed or are still developing — or you simply have something to share — our aim is to provide you with a friendly audience so you can be heard.

Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with the shades of deeper meaning.

-Maya Angelou  I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
