Review for Insideout Literary Arts Project, Detroit, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I truly love this organization, the instructors who help teach students poetry and the professions who sometimes take time out to do a workshop with the students. I have been a member for this organization. I was embarrassed when I joined because I was the only freshman. Fortunately throughout time becoming a poet, your writing technique and stage presence gets stronger throughout the years. I am currently a nursing major at Eastern Michigan University. Although I don't perform poetry as much as I use to I feel no other poetry organization is better than InsideOut Citywide Poets. Maybe one year I will join the poetry society here. I continue to write when I can and have take a creative writing course and this semester Literature 102 where we evaluate different pieces of poetry throughout time. Ever since InsideOut, I don't think I would ever stop writing poetry. Performing is a bit more of a challenge but I learned a lot of techniques to get me prepared to perform in front of an audience. I love this organization and I hope that they will continue for many years to come so that children and teens have a chance to be apart of something unique and express their talent, feelings, creativity and poetry.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Reading my poem on air at the WDET radio station.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Exciting, fun, and loved poetry.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

create snacks in the afterschool sessions, and get the students their own personal poetry journal.

Ways to make it better...

I had snaks after school because students usually want to go home and eat.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

non because I've seen the shyest students perform on stage.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the InsideOut Literary Arts Project is a positive organization.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

Role:  Former Volunteer & I wrote and performed poetry for this orgainzation throughout the city of Detroit for four years.
