We would be nothing without our community. Our mission is to encourage and educate our local area, not only through entertainment but by actively engaging one another through creative writing workshops and community partnerships with fellow organizations.

Project R.O.O.T. encourages both youth and adults to find their talents within themselves and to celebrate these talents within the community. Through interactive writing workshops, restorative conversations, and engaging experiences, participants gain the empowerment to establish (or root) themselves and activate their full potential.


This multifaceted retreat, takes place in Cleveland, OH from August 2nd to August 4th. Our goal is to tailor-fit this program for writers and spoken-word artists seeking to dive deeper into their craft. Whether you're a seasoned wordsmith or new to the world of performance, this retreat is designed to spark your individual craft and fuel your creative journey. Through a dynamic blend of interactive sessions, collaborative projects, and insightful discussions, participants will have the opportunity to expand their horizons, hone their skills, and forge meaningful connections with other literary artists. By the end of our three day journey, participants will end our time together with a collaborative, public reading and performance for the community of Cleveland to enjoy.

  • Applications are open until Friday, July 5th. Final participants will be notified on Monday, July 15th.

  • For this cohort, 20 applicants will be selected.

  • Participation requires a fee of $100.00, payable once participation is confirmed.

  • Group rate hotel prices for those traveling from out of town will be available.

  • Participants must be 18 years old or above.
