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 shine 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 should be 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.
Due to the war in Ukraine, there are over 11 million displaced people. Women and children make 90% of people fleeing Ukraine due to the war. Because of this, Ukrainian students have a language barrier starting schools in new countries. Poetry has been proven to help people learn new languages and can be a form of therapy due to the traumas of war and displacement. We translated our poetry pamphlet into the Ukrainian language to positively impact the community of Ukrainian students.
The RPC Team works on creating poetry programs, blog content and opportunities to spread the love of poetry! We are on a mission to inspire poets around the world!
