Stephanie Lane Sutton is, in my opinion, one of the most brilliant emerging poets in Chicago. A few months back I had the pleasure of interviewing her, and it only re-affirmed what I already know: her raw and honest poetry will change the world.
The video I’m sharing with you today is of her reciting her incredible poem On Teaching Poetry in Chicago Public Schools. Stephanie submitted this poem to the Write Bloody Publishing 2013 contest. She is now a finalist and if she wins, she could get the book deal she’s always dreamed of.
If her poetry moves you, please like and vote and let’s make Stephanie’s dream come true.
