Oakland Youth Poets Laureate
Learning to love poetry
Oakland Youth Poet Laureate Program
Young poets are wise, with an acute sense of justice. They tend toward community and away from ostracism, and they offer beauty with their words. Listening to these poets can help adults believe the world will be in good hands. The Oakland Youth Poet Laureate program is a great way to stay in touch with young voices or foster your creativity as a young poet.
