Our Oct. 17th launch party sold out, but you can still help us share the voices of incarcerated youth, and hear some of those voices in person yourselves!
We want all of you who were unable to get tickets to the October event to still be involved and to get a chance to meet some of the poets and hear from them directly, so we’re adding a bonus event to the calendar. The details are still to be decided, but it will be a Poetry Reading and Panel Discussion. Some of the authors will be in attendance and will read from the journal. The reading will be followed by a discussion with the poets and with local experts on the root causes of youth incarceration and potential solutions.
We’re asking you to be an ambassador of hope by sponsoring literary journals for schools, libraries, and other community spaces to bring our message of unity and healing through poetry to youths and communities across the country. Anyone who donates $50 before September 25th will receive a free ticket to the Poetry Reading and Panel Discussion as well as one free copy of The Untold Story of the Real Me. Your donation will provide two literary journals to youths in need.
Date, time, and location are TBD. We will keep you informed and update this page as more information becomes available.
