Stage Fright

Since 1997, Stage Fright has been the place for youth to share fiction, poetry, journals, songs, comedy routines, art, and more. If you have a piece of writing and want to share it in front of an audience, share it at Stage Fright! If you have a piece of writing and aren’t sure whether you want to share it in front of an audience, contemplate this at Stage Fright! If you want to enjoy and appreciate the work of your peer writing community, cheer them on at Stage Fright!

This Stage Fright event will include readings from our partners at Pongo Poetry Project who will join us onstage to share the work youth have written in their programs! Pongo Poetry Project is a Seattle-based nonprofit that uses personal poetry to facilitate healing among youth coping with devastating traumas. Its mission is to engage youth in writing poetry to inspire healing and growth.
