THE BOOT is a yearly journal publication of student poetry and prose developed in the Southwest Education Center’s Summer Writers Workshop.

The Boot has been published online since 2008, and past issues of The Boot can be obtained at this year’s reading.
Support a critical forum for community youth literacy, and most important, support the kids in your community finding positive ways to speak out!
