“The poet…reached stardom status, as much as any modern poet can hope to, when she gave a TED Talk in 2011. Project VOICE brings spoken word to young people nationally and internationally with the goal of inspiring creativity, letting students know that their opinions and ideas matter and, of course, searching for the next generation of spoken word prodigies such as Kay. Her philosophy about being a prodigy? We all have stories and thoughts and ideas worthy of being made into poetry.”

“Helping listeners discover more about themselves through spoken-word poetry is what poet Sarah Kay hopes to achieve…Kay performed poems focusing on family, love, and self-discovery, which she mixed with personal stories. Kay expressed a desire to help the students realize that their feelings and ideas should not go unheard.”
Sarah Kay releases her debut collection of poetry featuring work from the first decade of her career.
“No Matter the Wreckage” presents readers with new and beloved work that showcases Kay’s knack for celebrating family, love, travel, history, and unlikely love affairs between inanimate objects (“Toothbrush to the Bicycle Tire”), among other curious topics. The official release date is March 18, 2014 but you can pre-order it now! Published by Write Bloody Publishing and illustrated by the wonderful Sophia Janowitz!
Sarah Kay’s poem “Shosholoza” as published in CURA magazine. (With audio recording featuring singing by Andy Suzuki and drumming by Tebukozza Babumba of “Andy Suzuki & the Method”)
