Featuring the winners of the Under 30 Project Contest, themed: Protest Poetry

1st Place Winner: Stuart Canton
2nd Place Winner: Esti Shapiro

Stuart Livingston Canton is spending his last year before thirty in Sacramento where he has just graduated from Sac State. While lacking the wisdom that comes from being above 30, Stuart has attempted to see beyond his youth to address large issues like ecology with his writing, and has explored many methods such as concrete poetry and surrealism. He won a Bazzanella award for poetry from CSUS and this award is his first outside of an academic institution. His work has appeared in The American River Review, Calaveras Station Literary Journal, WTF!?, Poetry Now, and other local publications.

My name is Esti Shapiro and I am twelve years old. I graduated from the sixth grade at Shalom School and will be starting seventh grade at Sutter Middle School. I live with my parents, sister, brother, two dogs, and three chickens. I enjoy playing soccer, piano, and doing gymnastics. My poem is about following your dreams and not letting anybody tell you not to.
