Speaking Engagements

As an advocate of literacy and education, Diane Luby Lane is a highly sought after speaker. Known for her wit, inspirational message and, most importantly, her track record of getting results, she has been the featured speaker at numerous educational gatherings throughout the state.

Diane is recognized as one of the leading advocates of teen literacy in California. Dynamic in her approach and gifted in her ability to connect with teenagers, she uses literature to change lives​.

Founded in 2006, Get Lit-Words Ignite evolved from her critically acclaimed one woman show, Deep Sea Diving, which tells the story of how books restored her life.

Started as a grass roots organization, Diane has been able to garner support for Get Lit-Words Ignite from a variety of resources. With boosters such as Academy Award winning actor, Tim Robbins and his Actor’s Gang Theater to Carol Muskie-Dukes, Poet Laureate of the State of California, Get Lit has provided a pathway to success for thousands of LA youth, who have used poetry to get scholarships to college, forge professional careers in the arts, and more. Get Lit Player poets are role models for other youth, performing for thousands of their peers each year, inspiring them to read, write and thrive.

The main message is that through education anything is possible.

Get Lit-Words Ignite is a 501(c)(3) organization.
