My Fellow Literary Enthusiast,
Over the years, I’ve heard a great deal of writers, especially spoken word artists, express how they feel that incorporating correct punctuation in their work stifles their poetic creativity and how they feel it limits their freedom of expression. However, I would argue that the opposite holds true.
Feel free to listen in to the discussion Onyx King (published author, motivational speaker, and playwright), Allison Fowler (mental health care professional, local poet, editor), and I, The Stormy Poet, had around the topic.
We dispell the myth that utilizing proper grammar in your compositions makes your work sound boring, stale, or snooty, and we break down how, even in poetry, correction punctuation can actually enhance and empower the effectiveness of your material.
THIS AUDIO WAS RECORDED AT A “WORDSMITHS & READERS OF TARRANT” MEETING, A LOCAL WRITING GROUP THAT I LEAD.
