We are so excited to announce that Free Verse Project has received a $30,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to fund a collaboration with Arts Without Boundaries Foundation and Second Season. The grant will fund the creation of a series of writers’ residencies at high schools, on reservations, and in juvenile detention centers, and the subsequent public presentation of these young writers’ works in community dialogues.

This is a matching grant, so we are heading into fall ready to throw ourselves into fundraising so we can get started on our work with the kids!
