InsideOut (iO) has been amplifying the voices of Detroit students through literary self-expression since 1995. iO brings accomplished writers into classrooms to lead creative writing workshops with K-12 students over the course of the year. Through artistic mentorship, professional publication, and performance opportunities, we’ve empowered more than 50,000 Detroit youth to explore poetry as a tool to become better students and ultimately more engaged citizens.
Your support will benefit award-winning programs like Citywide Poets (CWP), an after-school literary community for young people to explore their lives through the written and spoken word. Citywide Poets programming for teens includes Louder Than A Bomb: The Michigan Youth Poetry Festival, which brings together teams of high school poets from across Michigan for a weekend of collaborative and competitive artistry.
Your support of InsideOut will help sustain and grow our classroom residencies in Detroit schools and allow us to serve more students. Louder Than A Bomb will expand to a two-day festival and become a signature event for youth in Metro Detroit.
