A special poetry folio featuring work by Asian American high school students

This April, in honor of National Poetry Month, the poetry section is featuring the work of 10 extraordinary Asian American high school writers. Their poems celebrate their identities and experiences navigating the complexities of growing up in America today. Below you will find a table of contents with links to each piece. We hope this incredible group of writers inspires you as much as they have inspired us.
