Poetry is having a moment during the pandemic, and Poet Laureate of the United States Joy Harjo said the surge of new talent may bring about a renaissance.

Poet Amanda Gorman is among the heralded new voices. She caught the nation’s attention with the lyrical rendition of her poem, “The Hill We Climb,” at the January inauguration of President Biden.
