Paste Magazine:

“A cinematic spoken word revelation”.

“Finding your voice so that the world can start to appreciate what it doesn’t know about those it hears from far too seldom.”

Roger Ebert:
"A roster of new talent who wield a more modern type of musical expression—beat poetry—to talk about their insecurities, their identities, and their potential to foster good things in the world.”

The Film Stage: 
"Get Lit is a non-profit organization that uses poetry as a way to help at-risk teens and improve teen illiteracy. They also boast a curriculum currently being used in one-hundred schools. Look them up if you want to smile."
