Welcome to Las Voces del Futuro: Poesía de Denny, produced by Denny International Middle School students and Jack Straw Cultural Center. This webpage and our audio recordings and chapbook of the students' poems are the culmination of a project with Jack Straw artists in residence and students from the eighth grade Dual Language Spanish Immersion program at Denny International Middle School in Seattle, Washington during the winter of 2020. In this project, students in Liz Olsen's class worked with Jack Straw's professional writer Raúl Sánchez; vocal coaches Katya Davida Landau and Fernando Luna; and audio engineers Bryan Angeles, Daniel Guenther, CJ Lazenby, and Ayesha Ubayatilaka to write, perform, and record their own poetry. Jack Straw has worked with Denny students since 2012 to help them create and share their stories and poetry and build respect for each other's experiences.

In addition to these audio recordings, we published an anthology of the students' poems, both in the original Spanish and translated to English. The book is available for purchase at this link.
