Imagine a poetry book that is filled with the mysteries and ideas of this current generation! The Los Gatos High School English 9 honors classes are back with a brand new, poetry-filled anthology full of everything the student authors are feeling in their lives and thinking about the world around them. This poetry is truly from the heart and strives to portray mature, imaginative, and creative ideas that you will not be able to find anywhere else. English teachers Tonya McQuade and Kathleen Wehr, in partnership with Smashwords CEO Mark Coker and Los Gatos Town Librarian Henry Bankhead, headed up the project, with six classes of students contributing a wide variety of poetic works, from humorous to inspiring to deeply personal. After submitting their poems, the students organized into project teams in order to produce their ebook, including Marketing and Publicity, Editing, Layout and Design, Art and Photography, and Event Planning. Smashwords provided the classes with the information, tools, and platform needed for them to self-publish the book and get it out on the market. Buying this poetry anthology would be an excellent opportunity to witness the state of the minds of teenager, enjoy some amazing poetry, and support the LGHS class of 2018.
