"Still" Writing in Rhythm: Youth Poets at Work
Winn, Maisha T.
Urban Education, v54 n1 p89-125 Jan 2019
In this article, the author uses a "humanizing research" framework to analyze longitudinal data collected over the course of 10 years during a multi-sited ethnography of youth poets in a poetry collective called Power Writing. Using qualitative interviews to understand the role that literacy continues to play in the lives of Power Writing alumni, the author demonstrates how Power Writing continues to influence youth poets' views on education as they continue their lives as college students, workers, parents, and partners.
