Announced Friday, “The Power of the Pen” campaign is designed to showcase poetry and journaling as a means of inner expression. The “Trip” singer is encouraging fans to use the hashtag #PennysPen on social media and GetSchooled.com to share their favorite poems.


Top entries will be eligible for a #PennysPen writing kit.

“Jhene has a powerful vision to inspire young people to understand the power of their pen. She understands that when young people can use their writing to express who they are and what they have experienced,  they can become better advocates for themselves and their communities, “said Marie Groark, Executive Director of Get Schooled.  “Get Schooled is excited to partner with Jhene in the fulfillment of this vision.”

The Power of the pen campaign will last throughout the week, ending Friday, Oct. 27th.
