Anywhere in the USA, 16 January 2012:  For everyone who’s a lover, supporter and/or encourager of literary arts, here’s a great non-hassle way to help promote the literacy movement.  From January 27 – January 31 2012 join forces with a non-profit group originated out of Greensboro, NC, Poet.She.  Poet.She is a female spoken and literary group that strives to strengthen the female presence in the literary and spoken word community. This group consists of women primarily based out of NC, SC, VA, MD, DC and ATL who are passionate about poetry, writing, literature and want to share that passion with the community. 

The members of Poet.She are making fantastic strides and building a strong reputation in the southeast region.  All members are fueled from an unbreakable passion to have the females voice, from elementary age to our elders, heard.  For this reason, Barnes and Noble has partnered up with Poet.She to help do just that. 

Spoken word is a beautiful artistic expression that Poet.She believes has a need to be shared more frequently and in very diverse creative ways.  Poet.She’s goals are to continue hosting writing workshops for school age children, including institutions of higher level education, to complete their first stage production and support local community events that promote literacy.  The group, along with Barnes & Noble, needs your help to make a more impactful change in 2012.
