Rising Poets Community's mission is to empower youth to find their voice through poetry. We strive to build a community where young poets at heart can be loud, proud, and fearless. By creating a platform with an inclusive environment, we hope to become a place where rising poets can showcase their unique personalities, learn to express themselves, overcome insecurities and expand their horizons. RPC school clubs are another way we hope to bring together young people who appreciate poetry and enjoy communicating with other like-minded individuals. An encouraging spirit and respect to every voice is at the foundation of every RPC club. With nationwide poetry programs, award-winning poetry book activities, clubs, and local creative writing workshops/seminars, RPC also aims to fight illiteracy and change the world through poetry, one poem at a time.
