Our community of young Oakland poets has been going strong since 2012.

One of the things we are most proud of is how involved our poets continue to be. They attend alumni events, MC our performances, mentor newer poets, and advise us along the way as we develop and grow the program.

Once an OYPL poet, always an OYPL poet!

OYPL Performances and More

OYPL poets are able to perform, speak, host workshops, plan projects, & share their truths in many ways. See what they've accomplished!
