Get Lit Players event announcement
Join us to learn more about how to integrate spoken word poetry in the classroom. This workshop will feature the nationally renowned Get Lit Players (www.getlit.org). We welcome teachers, preservice teachers, high school students, college students, and the public.The first 50 individuals who register for the full workshop will receive a Get Lit Rising book.

Get Lit Rising brings to life the true story of nineteen teen poets (the Get Lit Players) who are inspiring thousands of teens across the country through their award-winning performances of classic and spoken word poems. This book takes readers inside the private lives of these teen poets as they try to transform the lives of inner city teens in some of the toughest life circumstances. The Get Lit Players include teens who struggle with homelessness, autism, incarceration, body image, depression, and more. But they use the power of poetry to reclaim their lives and influence their friends, families, and communities.
