A collection of fierce, empowering poems by living, self-identified women writers intended for young women ages 13+. Full of advice, critique, reflection, commiseration, humor, sorrow and rage, this anthology includes poems by some of the most exciting female poets writing and performing today. Courage: Daring Poems for Gutsy Girls will live in lockers, backpacks and under beds for years, its pages reblogged, tattooed, dog-eared and coffee stained.
"These Poems are full of pain, humor, and guts. I wish this was required reading when I was in school."
- America Ferrera
