Inspire, challenge entertain
Write Out Loud engages people of all ages with stories of all kinds. Whether it be stories we read, stories we write, stories we tell, stories we act… Any story that makes you laugh, makes you think, makes you pause, makes you wonder, Write Out Loud is here to provide you with opportunities to take your story-centric experience to the next level.
The Mission of Write Out Loud is to inspire, challenge and entertain by reading literature aloud to audiences of all ages.
Write Out Loud Incorporates the democratic values of human equality, the habitual practice of inclusion, demonstration of respect for all and recognition of the benefits of diversity while opposing discrimination based on—but not limited to—race, religion, country or ethnic origin, citizenship, language, political opinion, sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, age, or economic class.
Through its programs, hiring, leadership selection, planning, and decision-making processes, Write Out Loud will build on its appreciation for the wide-ranging content of literature to reinforce the value of inclusion, improve reading and language skills for all, highlight the language that articulates the experience of marginalized groups, and expand the community’s potential to discuss the persistence and possible resolution of obstacles to inclusion.
We recognize that harm to our programs, community, and individual wellbeing, is caused by not doing so.
