"Poetry comes from the heart, it’s the soul-talk of a culture. Get Lit makes this happen in so many wonderful ways. When young people own both a classic poem, and then endeavor to create their own poetic responses, this is the bridge between generations, of the old and the new, of the traditional and the yet-to-be-traditional. Get Lit makes this happen – and we as a city, a country, and a world are better off for it. "

Get Lit Players Perform with Joy Harjo at Cate Convention

After Get Lit Founder, Diane Luby Lane led a workshop for teachers on “Performance Poetry in the Classroom,” it was time for some poetry!

Get Lit Players, Jazmine, Monique and Dario performed live on stage with Joy Harjo for teachers throughout Southern California at the CATE convention.  Dario & Monique performed “If I Awaken In Los Angeles” and Jazmine performed “FEAR” while Joy accompanied her on the flute! It was beautiful and astonishing and we were blessed to have shared some moments with the LUMINOUS, Joy Harjo.
