Ali Main Final Pitch

For my final, I would like to do a story on Get Lit- Words Ignite, an organization based in Westlake that teaches spoken word poetry to teenagers in the area  in almost 100 schools to “increase literacy, empower youth, and inspire communities.”

I will interview the founder Diane Luby Lane, as well as teachers and students (those who are 18 years old).

In addition to a text piece on the organization bringing spoken word culture to students who otherwise would not be as engaged in the arts, I would also like to embed a video (or possibly an audio slideshow) profiling one or more students. I would also like to make a map web element of all of the schools that Get Lit reaches with its program.
