Welcome to the FreeWord Family

3 Jun

Thank for visiting the FreeWord website.

FreeWord began as just an idea during the summer of 2009 as founder and current FreeWord coach, Clint Smith,  questioned the artistic space that Davidson College offered. Clint created FreeWord after realizing how unfamiliar many Davidson students were with spoken word poetry, and saw and opportunity to bring an art form to the campus that could really get people’s attention. He also saw it as a chance to provide a platform for talented performers and writers to grow as poets and people.

Freeword is now Davidson College’s premiere slam poetry group, hosting performances to packed crowds in the 900 Room. Competing at College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational (CUPSI) in April of 2010, the group placed within the top ten in the country to advance and compete in semifinals.

In their first year as a team, The FreeWord family has grown to include twelve living, breathing and spitting poets who are ready with open arms to welcome Davidson’s next incoming class of first-years.

Feel free to browse the site for information on our poets as well as upcoming performance dates and events.

Welcome to the family!
