How do I get in contact with TheSpeakersCorner.co.uk?
What is TheSpeakersCorner.co.uk?
It's a website designed to pool the best 'spoken word' content on the internet. Specifically, the content should tick at least one, or preferably all, of the following boxes: inspiring; educational; entertaining.
This content may come in
various shapes and forms, including interviews, formal speeches, songs,
raps, performance poetry and more.
What is 'spoken word'?
Often short for 'spoken word poetry', 'spoken word' in this context is a rebirth of artistic, vocal wordplay that can have as much in common with Hip-Hop as it does Shakespeare. This website will feature spoken-word poetry as well as more generalised spoken-word content.
Why do you feature so many 'inspirational/motivational' posts?
Hearing the right words from the right person can change your life for the better; certain speakers are truly powerful in their content and/or delivery.
We live in a world in which we
are bombarded by negativity, poor role models and the glorification of
personal wealth over societal value. On the occasions that
'TheSpeakersCorner.co.uk' finds someone's thoughts, words or actions
truly inspiring, we want to pool such content into one central resource
of reference points for ourselves and others to draw upon.
Why is the website design so understated?
Firstly, we're fans of functional, minimalist design. Secondly, we hope it will draw more attention to the content of the website, rather than the means in which it is delivered.
Why aren't content updates as frequent as other websites?
The aim is quality, not quantity; 'TheSpeakersCorner.co.uk' is hoped to be an inspiring resource, not a flippant distraction.
Who designed the cool logo?
Why are there sometimes adverts on the website and videos?
They're there to generate income. The hosting of 'TheSpeakersCorner.co.uk' costs money and the advertising revenue will hopefully cover those costs. Feel free to browse the adverts you see; hopefully they'll be relevant.
Thanks for reading!
