From thirteen-year-old award-winning slam poet Solli Raphael comes Limelight, an extraodinary book that showcases that age is no barrier to creating poetry that inspires social change and positive action.


Limelight is a unique collection of slam poetry paired with inspirational writing techniques. With over 30 original poems in different forms, Raphael's work tackles current social concerns for his generation, such as sustainability and social equality, all while amplifying his uplifting message of hope. Solli’s book also contains 5 chapters on how to write and read poetry, how to manage stage fright and writer’s block, and encouraging tips on how we can all make tomorrow better than today.

As a voice of his generation, and at a time when youth movements worldwide hold much importance, Raphael is taking on the world...one word at a time.

The future needs you and me
to create equality
across all levels
of humanity
