HEAR HERE POETRY
ENCOURAGING YOUNG PEOPLE TO ACTIVELY LISTEN, WRITE, & SHARE
Hear Here exists to activate and amplify youth voices by digging deep and planting seeds for poetry to grow.
We encourage people to actively listen, write, and share by providing high-quality access to written and performance poetry events and education. Through online workshops, school projects, community programs, and friendly slam competitions, we engage poetry as a life-long skill to enjoy.
Hear Here Poetry at a Glance
We know our strength lies not only in the words we stand by and share, but most importantly in the people we connect with and the communities we build. When young people courageously tell their own stories on their own terms, it improves the quality of their lives and relationships; listening to and encouraging them improves ours.
Poets, not merely poetry, belong in schools. We look forward to connecting with you to talk about how we can design a community event or program specific to your needs. More than time spent with microphone or pen, we exist to foster brave, inclusive, and life-sharing networks!
