2016 RYPA

Rattle Young Poets Anthology


RYPA 2016

The annual RYPA returns for another year of delightful and insightful poetry that happens to be written by young people. This is not a collection just for kids—these are missives to adults from the next generation, confronting big topics with fresh eyes and a child-like spontaneity. Forty-six poets age 15 or younger contributed to this 72-page volume—53 poems in total. Order your copy and see why the RYPA is always the highlight of our year as publishers.
