Rising Stars: New Young Voices in Poetry

New poetry by exceptional and emerging young poets and illustrators

Pop Up and Otter-Barry Books collaborate to present ‘Rising Stars’: a poetry anthology launching the work of five young debut poets and three graduate illustrators – all under 25. Each poet presents eight new poems for 10-14 year olds, and will create online and video resources to inspire young readers to write poetry themselves.

‘Rising Stars’ launches October 2017. To learn more or order your copy please click HERE
