Though this project/ book thematically is open for interpretation,we would like you to consider how you as a poet can write a “song” that conveys one of the following: sadness at the loss for these children left alone, a message of hope to the children, and a call to the community at large to remember these little lives as they forge ahead. This is meant to be a work of encouragement rather than a sounding board for political opinions.
More information is available at Fill the Cracks. The deadline for submission is June 1st. We still have room for more poetry, but the book is filling up quickly.
