To celebrate its 15-year anniversary, Street Roots has hand-selected the best poetry and art from its archives to be featured in its inaugural book, "I Am Not a Poet: 15 Years of Street Roots Poetry & Art." This anthology offers an intimate, honest look into the multiple dimensions of the human experience. Tackling concepts of love and lust, addiction and recovery, street life and survival, hope and humanity, "I Am Not a Poet" proves that - poet or not - poetry is a vehicle for truth and empowerment.
Street Roots is Portland's flagship, non-profit newspaper supporting social advocacy, homelessness, and poverty alleviation. All proceeds from this book benefit Street Roots programs.
