#WisdomWednesday: Elizabeth Acevedo

 "Write the stories you've always wanted to read. Allow yourself to be the main character of your narrative. Become both the window and the mirror for those who read your work. Lean into fear. Write the hard poem." — Elizabeth Acevedo

In addition to being an accomplished writer—she was at the National Book Festival Year with her new book The Poet X—Elizabeth Acevedo has also been a returning host for the Poetry Out Loud National Championships. Visit the Poetry Out Loud website to learn how your school can get involved with this dynamic poetry recitation program for high schoolers that helps students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, and learn about literary history and contemporary life.
