About Us

Our Mission Statement

The mission of BreatheINK Charlotte is to create poetic safe spaces and build an artistic community for Charlotte, NC area youth by developing opportunities for positive self-expression through youth focused poetry programming.

A Variety of Events

BreatheINK Charlotte delivers high quality, year-round writing and performance development programming and outreach that equips and empowers teen poets to share personal stories and opinions on issues they are passionate about.

Workshops and Mentoring

We are committed to sharing our love and knowledge of creative writing, editing, performance, etc.  Through workshops, one-on-one sessions, and group discussions, our students are able to learn from overwhelmingly successful adult poets, coaches, and slammasters with many decades of experience.
