The Write Side Poets is a non-profit organization designed to gather, inspire, assist, and encourage young writers (ages 13 to 24 years old) who desire to speak their own messages through the powerful medium of spoken word art to millions of their urban and suburban peers. Politically aware, critically engaged, and unafraid to speak, young people are picking up the pen and grabbing hold of the microphone, moving themselves into positions of power – claiming voice when they’ve been voiceless and access where they’ve been denied.
"Most joyful let the Poet be, it is through him that all men see." -W.E. Channing
