Voice Within Us Release Party Highlights

On April 17th 2014, we welcomed a lively group of Y.O.U. (Youth Organizations Umbrella, Inc.) students to Northwestern for a reading celebrating their talent and accomplishments in the Voice Within Us program. A limited edition chapbook of their work was released by Damask Press to celebrate the occasion. Please scroll down for a slideshow of photos from the evening, and click here to watch a complete video.

The Voice Within Us program consists of a series of poetry workshops with Evanston high school students. The workshops are led by talented Northwestern students and overseen by faculty associated with Northwestern’s Poetry and Poetics Colloquium.┬áThe Poetry and Poetics Colloquium began the Voice Within Us program in collaboration with the English Department of Evanston Township High School. It has since expanded into a partnership with Y.O.U., a youth development agency that provides services and leadership to meet the emerging needs of young people and their families in the Evanston community.
