Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

They arrive scribbled on pizza boxes, brown paper bags, and in carefully wrapped notebooks. Now they're brought together in one important anthology.

From Street Roots, Portland's flagship, non-profit newspaper supporting social advocacy, I Am Not A Poet: 15 Years of Street Roots Poetry & Art offers an intimate, honest look into the multiple dimensions of the human experience. Tackling concepts of love and lust, addiction and recovery, street life and survival, hope and humanity, I Am Not A Poet proves that — poet or not — poetry is a vehicle for truth and empowerment. Compiled from fifteen years of printed Street Roots poetry penned by people experiencing homelessness and poverty, all proceeds from the anthology support Street Roots' social advocacy and poverty alleviation work.
