757 Perspectives

Volume II:  Evolutions


December 13 -January 15

     The Hampton Roads Poetic Collective is doing it again.  We are excited to announce the pending publication of the 2nd Volume of our anthology, 757 Perspectives.  This time, we will support a new and equally worthy cause, the G.R.O.W. Foundation. 

     Established in August 2016 by activist and fellow poet, Neisha Himes,  G.R.O.W. Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization connecting women affected by domestic violence with the resources needed to lead a safe and productive life. Examples of the resources referred are but not limited to: housing assistance, job referrals, clothing and/or food donations, mentorship programs, etc. It is G.R.O.W.'s unwavering goal to empower these women with the tools needed to become financially independent and self-sufficient in all areas of life. 

     Accordingly, our theme for this year's anthology will be growth.  We ask that all submissions fall into one of three categories.

1. The Innocence - This first section of Evolutions will focus on childhood,  naiveté and beginnings.

2. Trials - The second chapter will explore the loss of innocence and hardship.

3. Resurrection - We will conclude the book with life after trails, realizations and renewed sense of purpose.

To submit, please complete the form below and attach the poem as a Word document.  We are only accepting three submissions per poet.  Please submit each poem separately.
