Behind the Word

Phonetic Spit in partnership with ASU’s School of Film, Dance, and Theatre and Mesa Arts Center’s ‘Spoken World Series’ is excited to launch its new endeavor, The Behind the Word Series. The Behind the Word Series takes a slightly different approach in the appreciation of the Culture of Spoken Word Poetry. This monthly series will not only showcase Game Changing Poetry, but also a Behind the Word look into some of the Nation’s top Poets. Behind the Word features Poets who are using their platforms in the areas of Education – Youth Development – Social Justice – and Community Organizing. This month we are featuring, from the Bay Area, Terisa Siagatonu.
