p.i.n. - Poets in need
FOR POETS AND ARTISTS
P.I.N.s is a fundraising initiative to assist poets and artists in need of financial assistance to support them in building an artistic career and growing their craft. P.I.N.s aims to alleviate financial hardships so that artists may find more ease in mastering and pursuing their artistry. Whether it be for professional endeavors or development – financial support while working on a new project, wanting to pay for training/development in art field, class fees, personal life – the P.I.N.s initiative fund is our way of providing support and pouring into artists the many ways they have poured into their communities.
Please support us in reaching our goal by donating to the fund and pledging to support artists in creating equity within their artistic careers and building communities where art can thrive, heal, and unite. If you’re a poet or artist in need of financial support you may apply to receive a reward from this fund.

FOR AGES 8-16
Poetry Unplugged Junior’s is for the children. It is a non-judgmental environment where teens can feel encouraged to express themselves without fear of criticism or rejection. We aim to foster a space where creativity is celebrated in all its forms and the journey of growth and self-discovery through artistic expression is emphasized. Poetry Unplugged Junior's intention is to impact aspiring teen artists of the next generation providing guidance, mentorship and support in their artistic endeavors.
Poetry Unplugged Junior provides a creative outlet for teens in Northeast Ohio, and surrounding areas to express themselves and showcase their talents. In partnership with the Sparrows Fortune Organization, specifically their programming, Project R.O.O.T, TSF will provide writing workshops with local districts, schools, and youth-facing organizations to support participants and performers in sharing their talents through the Poetry Unplugged Junior platform.
