Stealing Shakespeare’s Pencil, an anthology featuring young poets from Ireland, Europe and across the world, brings together young writers from disparate backgrounds and a number of languages. Despite the varying cultures and nationalities, the featured poets explore collective human experiences – romance, politics, bullying, friendship, poverty, family, loss and recession – creating a unified voice for young people across the globe.
Stealing Shakespeare’s Pencil captures the thoughts and feelings of a generation facing an uncertain future, in a sometimes humorous, often humbling collection that challenges the stereotyped perception of young people as uncaring and disaffected.
