This collection of poetry, edited by Malia Guerrero, is a letter of love to the young people of Hawai’i.

Through finely wrought lines, intimate stories, and incisive truths and images, Puanani Burgess, Jamaica Osorio, Kamanukea Kekoa, and N’ou Revilla honor their multi-generational ties to family and reclaim the language, land, and water that is their birthright.

Artwork by Kanani Miyamoto infuses these pages.

We are especially interested in printing books of poetry, short stories, and hybrid forms by authors of cultures and groups that have been largely underrepresented in mainstream publishing.
