No One Can See the Hidden Ocean I've Created
No One Can See the Hidden Ocean I've Created is an anthology of poems by the eighth-grade students at the Academy for Young Writers. The works chart the challenging and ever-changing boundaries between how the world sees us, and how we see ourselves. These poems are honest, generous, wry, tender, hilarious, and perfectly impatient with the notion that we are each only allowed to be just one thing.
