Displacement: Stories of Hope and Humanity
3rd August 2015

An opportunity for poets from The Leaveners, a charity that promotes social engagement and change through the arts.

We welcome poetic submissions for the month of September 2015 on the theme of Displacement: Hope and Humanity. Displacement affects millions of people worldwide, and though these are often times of great suffering, helplessness and hardship, stories of hope and humanity do emerge. We are looking to uncover the stories of compassion, the camaraderie, and kindness that swim beneath the surface of some of Man’s darkest times.

In addition to creating an archive of diverse poems about this important topic, one poem will be displayed in October in a Birmingham poetry cafe. You can submit one poem to Guest Poetry Curator Pete Stones: Please include your email address and phone number, and a short poetry statement (max. 65 words). The deadline for submissions is the 1st of September 2015.
