All Oakland Youth Poet Laureate Poets

Our community of young Oakland poets has been going strong since 2012. Ten years and counting! 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!
