Spoken Word

The Texas School Public Relations Association has contracted with the Houston-based Spoken Word Communications to provide the next generation of Media and Crisis Communications training to our members. Spoken Word Communications teaches techniques that build confidence and credibility when communicating, ensuring that the message you set out to deliver is received by your audience. Whether it’s taking questions from the media, responding to crisis situations or simply giving presentations, Spoken Word’s critiques of participants’ performance in true-to-life practice scenarios build skills and the experience necessary to guarantee assured performance when the real situation arises.

TSPRA is partnering with Spoken Word to host training sessions across the state. The session Media/Crisis Communications will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Each training requires a minimum of 25 participants and the deadline to sign up is Friday, October 21. The price for this training is $250 per person.

  • October 31 at the ESC Region 12 building
  • November 1 at Region 10 ESC in Dallas

TSPRA and Spoken Word have come to an agreement that the sessions planned for Monday, October 31 at Region 12 ESC and Tuesday, November 1 at Region 10 ESC will still be held and registration remains open. Walk-up registrations will be available at both locations. There will be NO individual cancellations for these two events.
