Southern Word

A Leadership Cohort Organization

Through the literary and performing arts, Southern Word offers creative solutions for youth to build literacy and presentation skills, reconnect to their education and to their lives, and act as leaders in the improvement of their communities. We are absolutely committed to providing youth, especially in underserved communities, with as many opportunities as possible to develop and publicly present their voices both live and in print, video, audio, and digital media.

In pursuing this mission, Southern Word conducts spoken word school residencies, after school workshops, open mics, and shows.
