This year’s special evening of poetry, song, tribute and praise featured The InkWELL, a new 501(c)(3).  Started by Miss Kiane herself, The InkWELL shares the same heart as the vision of Kiane Ink; to help people heal, find their voice and love themselves through reflective writing and creative expression programming.

We raised over $1000 in support of The InkWELL’s inital 2020 programs!
