"William Beale’s they call us loud is a boy howling his way into the world, despite all its muzzles."
- Bill Moran, US spoken word poet
"His aptly-named debut collection captures the infectious energy of his vibrant spoken word performances, ranging from deeply personal confessions, to astute examinations of race and privilege.
In each poem he holds the kind of self-awareness that pushes literature beyond decorative form and into necessary dialogue with the reader."
- Caits Meissner, poet and arts educator
