About this show

Mike Geffner's Inspired Word, one of New York's most popular indie performance series, presents Speak Up Live: A Poetry & Spoken Word Experience.

Hosted by Emmy-winning filmmaker, pioneering UN/NGO storyteller/artist curator, and two-time TEDx speaker Lisa Russell, the night includes poets/spoken word artists Roxy Azari, equal parts writer and activist, who performed at the United Nations during General Assembly Week this year and was featured on PBS; Poetic Boy D, a picture-painting storyteller who will plant powerful images and lingering memories; and Kevin Becker, who will dazzle you with verbal gymnastics, uniquely alliterative wordplay, and a rapid-fire, almost breathless delivery.

Founded and produced by former journalist Mike Geffner, InspiredWordNYC began in January 2010.
