The Stanford Spoken Word Collective is a student organization at Stanford University dedicated to cultivating exquisite emotion both within and without ourselves to generate explosive written and spoken poetry.


The Collective functions both as a community and as the primary logistical and funding body for Stanford’s Slam Poetry Team. We are a family of poets that performs at campus events, community programs, and ACUI’s National College Poetry Slam. We also hold quarterly shows, bring artists to campus, and host writing workshops. If you’ve ever wanted to see the mic rocked like no other, you’ve found the right group!
