It is sadly all too common for refugees and displaced people to be considered other. In this beautiful poetry book, all words will be considered equal. At its core, Words By is a means of free expression and through it we hope to reinforce our shared humanity. We were inspired to create this book while visiting refugee camps in Greece, where children and young adults write poetry as a way to express themselves and share their stories. We wanted to publish their work alongside established writers – from poets and rappers to authors and journalists – as well as submissions from our London community.
