The Creative Youth Center amplifies the voices of youth in Grand Rapids by giving them the tools and courage they need to write. We publish some of those writings in our annual anthology, The Book of Explosions. You can purchase those books and smaller chapbooks here. You can even add on some swag to boost your own creativity.
You can also find books published by the Creative Youth Center at Books & Mortar, Schuler Books & Music, and The Sparrows.
