About the New Works Writers Series:

New Works Writers Series (New Works), is a not for profit 501c3 organization, founded December 1989, by Imelda Hunt, to provide an arena for showcasing local area writers, poets, musicians and actors. New Works produces and conducts workshops, ethnic plays and seminars. New Works has produced over 50 plays, history publications, open poetry forums, and musical performances, since its inception. It has showcased numerous new talents, which have gone on to be prominent in their communities and successful in their careers. This concept has been well received, in that it produces a forum for many who would never get a chance to excel in their gifts.  New Works also established the annual Northwest Ohio Poetry Slam in 1999 that has attracted more than fifty poets and audiences of over two hundred spectators to the slam. Nationally know published spoken word poets such as Sonia Sanchez, Jessica Care Moore and Khari Kimani Turner have been guest and readers of events sponsored by New Works Writers Series. New Works have received funding in the past from the Ohio Humanities Council, Arts Commission of Greater Toledo, Toledo Museum of Art, and ECAP of BGSU, and Toledo Blade to name a few.
