  1. Which of these poems are published? I’m thinking that I want to do one of your poems for a Speech and Acting competition, but one of the rules is that the poem has to be published. (: Thank you.

  2. All of these are amazing! They inspire me so much when I write poetry. I’m have this dream of being a slam poet when i’m older But right now i’m 13 and preforming at my first open mic next week.

  3. Joanna, I just wanted to say that today I had my elocution competition and I performed ‘Hope’ and won 1st place. You have truly inspired me and I’m only 14 u no! Keep writing. XXXX
