She kept writing. When 14-year-old Ciera S. Louise was banned from writing poetry in her state welfare program, she hid her work in the ceiling tiles. Years later when her controversial work was banned from a newspaper, she published her second book.

Poetically Correct is a “banned” collection of poetry covering a range of personal, intellectual and political topics. Louise uses creative and varied poetic verse as a therapeutic tool for expressing her insights over the past eight years as she processed the emotional, intellectual and political events surrounding her.

With her latest book of poems, Louise hopes to generate awareness of the child welfare system in which she was raised and to inspire other child abuse survivors to find their voice in writing.
