Please join us in congratulating the winner and runners-up in our #EnchantedYARN poetry contest!
The winners Margarita Engle chose include a YARN Alum, a published poet, and a writer just sending out her first novel.
In this #ownvoices story by Diego Salinas, “Scar/City,” we glimpse a very real world in disarray — with stunning illustrations by María Octavia Russo.

To open our 2017 season, we have an #ownvoices story by the multi-talented Imani Josey — Robyn wants to win the Miss Teen City on the Lake Pageant, but only on her own terms.

Happy World Poetry Day from all of us at YARN! In celebration, today marks the day we open for submissions to our Finding Home poetry contest. We can’t wait to read your entries!
Happy almost-Spring! We at YARN could not be more thrilled about all the goodies we have coming your way in the upcoming 2017 season.
In honor of World Poetry Day, and inspired by the soon-to-be-released novel in verse, WHEN YOU NEVER SAID GOODBYE, by Meg Kearney, YARN has created an invitational poetry event called “Finding Home.”
To kick off the first day of National Poetry Month, YARN staffers Kip, Justin, and Lourdes sat down for a chat with verse novelists, Leza Lowitz and Dana Walrath, who were both out in Los Angeles for AWP.
