Get Lit Summer 2021

The Get Lit 2021 Summer Fellowship was a 2-week intensive poetry program that brought students together to form a virtual poetry community that spanned the globe, from China to Nigeria to England, and every region of the USA. 

Students designed a zine as their culminating project to highlight the poems they wrote using Get Lit’s signature Classic-Response model, in which students claim, analyze, and create original responses to classic and contemporary works.Get Lit – Word’s Ignite is an LA-based nonprofit that uses poetry to increase literacy, empower youth, and inspire communities.
