Admire The Silence  November 12, 2014 - December 1, 2014

Reading and Deliberating


This contest is for poetry submissions. Winners (Top 5) will be published in my new and soon to be coming novel Admire The Silence, which is about a teen girl in Egypt escaping the grasp of a violent culture and an arranged marriage with a much older man. Typically, the kind of poems I'm looking for have strong, deep contextual meaning and have had a lot of thought put into them. Don't be afraid to give it your all, I'm very excited to see what you all have to offer!
