Young Poets has a large collection of poetry written by young children and also teens, in various styles of poetry including Haiku, Limericks, Ballads, Cinquains and Free Verse. We also include their stories and some of their drawings where possible.
We do not require perfect rhythm for poems submitted by the younger poets as our desire is to encourage kids to write poetry and learn as they go.
We try to keep this a kid-safe site by only choosing those stories and poems suitable for young children to read. We do not publish any personal information on the kids. Submissions are only accepted if written by parents.
Note to parents: Some of these young poets get requests to have their poems featured in newsletters and other publications across the world so please keep your contact emails updated.
We are sorry but submissions to Young Poets are currently closed, unless you are a current poet and would like to add more poems to your page.
