Welcome Poets and Artists!
You’re at home, school is online. What are you going to do? Write poetry.
We are looking for poetry written by poets aged 18 and under during this time of social distancing. And we want to read YOUR work. Yes yours.
Publish your work here in our online anthology. We want to hear your voice and your experience. We want to share it with the world.
Poetry will get us through hard times and help us heal.
Join us as we use poetry to come together, survive, thrive, and come out of this historic moment with something beautiful to hold.
