Rattle Young Poets Anthology

In 1998, Rattle published a special issue featuring poems written by children. It is now out of print, but the editors have revived and even extended the idea with an annual anthology of young poets: “the early years of language development are magical. No other time in life is full of such wonder, such imagination, and such linguistic experimentation. Young poets don’t write out of habit; they haven’t even learned yet how to be cliche. They write with a natural spontaneity that adults can only hope to achieve.” The first annual Rattle Young Poets Anthology, featuring 60 young poets 15 years or younger, is now available in print and as an ebook, with the poems appearing as daily content on the Rattle website throughout the year.
