Through the literary and performing arts, Southern Word offers creative solutions for youth to build literacy and presentation skills, reconnect to their education and lives, and act as leaders in the improvement of their communities. We are committed to providing youth, especially in underserved communities, with as many opportunities as possible to develop and publicly present their voices.
We offer writing and music production programs that inspire and engage youth, improve academic and life skills, and create safe, connected learning communities. Youth also engage in critical social-emotional processing and conversation as they write and share from their personal experience. Southern Word seeks to develop powerful communicators, providing the tools necessary to increase the ability of students to write, listen, and speak.
We serve more than 5,000 students annually across eight Tennessee Counties. Through partnerships with public schools, colleges, public libraries, and other community organization, Southern Word has created a continuum of programming that connects in-school and out-of-school learning, K-12 to college education, and young leader to professional economies.
