Amanda Gorman

Meet Amanda Gorman, the youngest inaugural poet in U.S. history (she is 22). Since 2017, she has served the United States as the first ever National Youth Poet Laureate, but this morning, she was launched further into the public spotlight when she recited a poem during President Biden's inauguration ceremony.

Her poem, titled "The Hill We Climb," is a new poem she wrote with the intention to "speak to the moment" and "do this time justice".

She does not have any published volumes of poetry, but you can now pre-order either of her 2 forthcoming books, slated for September 21, 2021.
