Still Waters Collective applies the craft of creative writing and the art of spoken word to build community, capacity, and confidence. Still Waters began as an adult open mic at a Milwaukee nightclub called Mecca. From four poets standing sharing their work around a tall cocktail table, the Still Waters series grew to a weekly institution that nurtured a community for more than a decade. Since 2008 Still Waters has predominantly focused on youth, delivering programs to more than three dozen schools every year.
