Another World

Publisher: Green Writers Press

“This must be another world.”  These opening lines of Hannah Christensen’s poem introduce us to Another World, an extraordinary book of poetry and art by young people, ages 7 to 16, from The Poetry Studio. The Poetry Studio, founded in 1995 by Ann Gengarelly, is indeed “another world” that inspires imagination and discovery. According to prizewinning poet/professor, Bruce Smith: "The students’ poems. . . are cracks in the construction, cures for the hurt, color for the bleakness, and challenges to the system.  These poems of love and rage are counterforces to unfeeling and silence. They are maps to be consulted when navigating the world. . ." The unfettered imagination of the poets is also represented in their compelling drawings and the artful presentation of their writing.

Another World is a testament to the wisdom and insight, the joy and compassion expressed by these young poets and artists.
