About Steve Braff

Steve Braff is drawn to performance poetry--recitations of his own work and others shared with the audience in a celebration of image & word, rhythm & rhyme: a play of word music that connects; a resonance in the heart, rather than scratching of the head. You hear it. You get it. You smile. Learn more about Steve at www.stevebraff.blogspot.com.
