Exiled Spoken Word Poetry Group

Exiled is a spoken word poetry group that is capable of working with any organization or club at Dickinson College. Spoken word is a form of free verse poetry that is theatrically preformed. The group writes about various topics whether it be personal, political, social agendas that have or are currently affecting a large group of people. The poets also illustrate and discuss their own personal experiences with the audience, using different poetic styles. This quality gives Exiled a unique attribute, and allows the group to affiliate themselves with LAC, MOB, Sustained Dialogue, and a variety of other groups. Exiled members have the ability to talk about an endless number of topics, providing for them the opportunity to apply their poetry to all clubs and organizations at Dickinson College.
