2023 RYPA




Rattle Young Poets Anthology

The annual RYPA returns for another year of delightful and insightful poetry that happens to be written by young people. As always, this is not a book of poems for children, but the other way around—these are poems written by children for us all, revealing the startling insights that are possible when looking at the world through fresh eyes. This 36-page chapbook is mailed to all Rattle subscribers along with our Summer 2023 issue. Twenty poets age 15 or younger contributed to this volume, offering their perspectives on the first crushes, childhood toys, climate change, nature, and more. Order your copy and see why the RYPA is always the highlight of our year as publishers.
