InsideOut Writing Workshop - March 16th | Canceled

EVENT CANCELED - Please check our events page for updates

InsideOut’s primary goal – to transform lives through the written and spoken word – had a profound effect on our founder, Dr. Terry Blackhawk (above left). A Detroit Public Schools teacher, Dr. Blackhawk witnessed firsthand the magic of having a writer-in-residence in her own classroom at Mumford High School. The experience of writing alongside her students fundamentally changed her life: “I thought, ‘If I’m asking them to do this, I should have the same experience myself.’ I fell in love with it. I became a poet.”
