Poets in Revolt! A Call to Action by Young Writers
“Let's write / make things right.” — Paris A., Grade 9, 826LA
Whether it’s the March For Our Lives, the Youth Climate Strike, or Black Lives Matter, young people are at the frontlines of combating injustice and changing the world. Poets in Revolt! brings together a diversity of student voices from communities across the country as they write to claim a brighter future.
“Here is a new wave of writers, and they will not turn back. They are, at the root, remarkable, resonant, rebellious, risk-taking revolutionaries.”
— from the foreword by Amanda Gorman, 2021 Inaugural Poet and Inaugural Youth Poet Laureate of the United States
