The Boot: 1993 to 2018

By Southwest Youth & Family Services

The Boot: 1993 to 2018, is a compilation of over 25 years of Boot literary journal poetry. The writing is the work of youth from occupied Duwamish and Suquamish territories (i.e. Seattle) and its working-class suburbs who participated in Summer Young Writer’ Workshops in West Seattle. Their experience of creating and sharing poetry, of pushing back at labels commonly enveloping them as young people of color, and of claiming themselves as individuals, is reflected in their truly powerful and insightful words.
