Carin Malone, aka Writeous Soul, is a poet and spoken word performer who calls Memphis her home. She is a prominent performer not only in the city, but throughout the country. A spoken word performer is more than someone who reads their poetry on stage. They take the words they crafted together and breathe life into them while sharing the meaning with their audience. It transforms words on a page to bring about greater impact, as the performer is able to alter how lines are delivered and accented to ensure those who are listening take away the most important meanings.
Turning life’s pain into impactful poems
Carin Malone’s spoken word performances and poems draw directly from past life experiences. She has found that taking life’s pain and transforming it into impactful poems helps transform the pain into something not only more meaningful to her, but to her audience. It is her drive and goal to help others around her draw meaning from these past life events. Because, while pain affects everyone, it is how people react to the pain that proves so much more important.
