If you don't learn how to write your own life story, someone else will write it for you. To Be Heard is the story of three high-school students who find their way into a dangerous poetry workshop that does not teach the "Roses Are Red" kind of poetry. Rather, it teaches the kind of poetry that changes lives and that only comes from the inside out.
Power Poetry in Motion
Inspired by the documentary, Power Poetry is the world’s first mobile poetry community for youth. Employing the latest hand-held technology, it enables young poets to use text, audio, images, and video to express themselves and connect their voices with urgent social movements. (Text POEM to 41411.) Young writers can compose, compare, collaborate, and comment, as they share their poetry on a global scale using the transformative power of language to turn social networks into poetry slams.
