Spoken Word


The Texas School Public Relations Association has contracted with 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 partners with Spoken Word to host training sessions across the state. We offer sessions on Media/Crisis Communications, Handling an Angry Public and Powerful Presentations. These are usually full-day events usually held from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Each training requires a minimum number of participants by the deadline to sign up. The price for training session is $300 per person, with discounts available for the host site. Districts and organizations can schedule a Spoken Word training for just their employees or open them up to others in TSPRA and their communities.

There are no cancellations for these events. Participants may send someone in their place if they can not attend.

To book a training session, contact the TSPRA State Office via email or by calling (512) 474-9107 with the dates and type of training you had in mind.
