We are a collective of poets and writers who believe in the power of language to convey truth and promote peace. Our members are spoken word artists, published authors, and new and emerging writers.

Our founder and partners are from Howard, Anne Arundel, and Frederick Counties; members and friends of the collective come from across Maryland. We perform live in the Maryland, greater Washington, D.C area and by remote anywhere.
