Get Lit was founded by Diane Luby Lane in 2006 in Los Angeles. It started in three high schools, Fairfax, Fremont, and Walt Whitman Continuation, and now they are in over 100!
Get Lit's poetry and film curriculum engages young people by providing a creative outlet, community, and real-life work experience, transforming students into activists, scholars, and stars.
Get Lit – Words Ignite fuses classic and spoken word poetry to increase teen literacy on the page and in visual media. They cultivate enthusiastic learners emboldened to inspire social consciousness in diverse communities.
Drop-in classes are open every Saturday from 10-2 to youth ages 13-19 of all experience levels to hone their writing and performance skills.
