Boston's official poetry ambassadors are out to make poetry fans of all of us. These days, it's an easier task for Boston's Poet Laureate and Boston's first ever Youth Poet Laureate, because there is a vibrant worldwide movement embracing poetry. April is National Poetry Month, so we're celebrating with these two young women who have mastered one of art's oldest forms of expression.


Porsha Olayiwola - the City of Boston’s current Poet Laureate and author of "I Shimmer Sometimes, Too."
Alondra Bobadilla – the City of Boston’s first ever Youth Poet Laureate, and junior at Fenway High School.
