Choosing to Speak Openly about Stuttering (265)

Brent Smith

Several weeks ago, StutterTalk received an email from Brent Smith. In that message, Brent asked how he could get involved in the stuttering community. Today, Brent jumps in and gets involved! He joins regular co-host Eric Jackson to discuss his experience growing up stuttering  and why, at this point in his life, he wants to start talking about stuttering and meeting others who stutter.

Brent was born and raised in Los Angeles. He’s an MFA candidate in Writing & Poetics at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. His work has been featured in World Affairs — The Journal on International Issues, NewMusicWeekly, ImagoZine, Splash Magazines Worldwide, Reality Sandwich, Denver Magazine and he authored the preface for journalist Paola Harris’ new book Exopolitics: Stargate to a New Reality.
