Real Poets pairs trained poet mentors with young people to help them write honest poems they can be proud of. It doesn’t matter whether a young poet has written before. All that matters is his or her willingness to write from the heart.
Real Poets is a project of the Sacramento Poetry Center and was started in 2013 with support from 916 Ink and mentorship from Seattle-based Pongo Teen Writing Project. Real Poets is hosted at Turning Point Community Programs in south Sacramento.
