Harnessing the power of words from page to stage to
Founded in 2016 by award-winning performance poet and storyteller Akwi Nji, we produce live literature events of spoken word, stories, and poetry that creatively tell a community's stories on stage.
The Hook is rooted in the human experience and we understand that outsiders become insiders and strangers become friends when we know one another's story. So, we tell stories.
We produce dozens of events each year which explore communities and their strengths, challenges, history, and growth through live lit--and sometimes combining music + dance.
Join us. Let's tell your story.
