by Floyd Boykin Jr., SpokenVizions® became a Limited Liability Corporation in April of 2002 and is expanding it's market.
The vision of SpokenVizions® grew rapidly with the launch of SpokenVizions Magazine, providing national information and recognition
about Spoken Word Artists and Poets to the general public. In such a short period of time, SpokenVizions Magazine has featured
national and local poets on its cover. Artist such as Shang of B.E.T. fame and Def Comedy Jam, CanHead Recording Spoken Word
Artist TANTRA (Brooklyn), Philadelphia Poet and Entrepreneur Stephanie Renee, 2x slam poetry champion at the Nuyorican Cafe
Mayda Del Valle and Malcolm-Jamal Warner with his first featured interview as a Spoken Word artist have graced the cover of
our magazine. We have also featured St. Louis greats such as M.K. Stallings, ILL SKILLZ, Mama Blue and Chill Da Player. Our
readership reached over 8,000 people and the web site averaged 20,000 hits per month. This was truly a great accomplishment.
On December 7th, 2002, SpokenVizions® sponsored its first premiere event, "PHONETICS: Ladies Night Out", featuring Amanda
Diva (HBO's Def Poetry Jam), Ms. Nterpretation (spoken word artists), and Kimberly Poe (vocalist extreme). The event was hosted
by ISIS JONES (radio personality/artist). Since then, "PHONETICS" has featured Maya Azucena of New York, Krystal Warren of
Kansas City, Jamila Firdausee of Chicago, Crystalee of Virginia, and Tracy Mitchell of St. Louis to name a few. On September

Word at the Black On Black Rhyme Banquet in Tallahassee, Florida. He also had the pleasure of being the keynote speaker at
this prestiges event. Later, in 2005, he was honored in the publication "Who's Who in Black St. Louis?" In January 2005, after
a three year run on a hard copy publication, SpokenVizions® Magazine placed it's publication on hold to restructure and to
rebuild the foundation of it's organization. Many readers expressed a void in the realm of poetry in terms of print media.
They expressed how they truly enjoyed reading about poets and their artistic endeavors. So, as a result, SpokenVizions has
launch it's magazine as an online entity, reaching a larger variety of people and continuing it's dedicated to promoting spoken
word poetry and it's movement.
