Poet Amanda Gorman’s moment certainly hasn’t passed.
She revealed the cover and new title for her upcoming poetry collection — Call Us What We Carry (formerly The Hill We Climb and Other Poems) — late last month.
Call Us What We Carry comes out December 7, but her children’s book, Change Sings: A Children's Anthem, will be available much sooner (September 21).
And a new poetry scholarship also, fittingly, pays homage to the youngest inaugural poet in US history, the first-ever national youth poet laureate, and the first poet to write and perform an original poem for the Super Bowl.
Penguin Random House Creative Writing Awards has added the Amanda Gorman Award for Poetry.
The winner of this award will receive a college scholarship of up to $10,000 to one young, promising poet, according to the PRH website.
Applications open October 1 for the 2022 award.
