Poetry in the Time of COVID:

Resilience, Community, and Connection

Build Community and Grow Your Writing

In April, New Hampshire Poet Laureate Alexandria Peary facilitated a free, virtual writers’ group. This provided New Hampshire residents a channel for creatively navigating our common experiences. The group:

  • Built community during a time of isolation

  • Provided writing prompts related to COVID-19 and our “new normal” 

  • Offered encouragement and actionable feedback

  • Prepared participants to submit their work for possible inclusion in an anthology published by Hobblebush Books

 

Get Published

At the conclusion of National Poetry Month, we invited New Hampshire residents to submit their work for consideration in an anthology of poems addressing the COVID-19 pandemic: how Granite Staters are experiencing and responding to isolation, job loss, changes in community, family and relationship, school, technology, personal values, sickness, grief, loss or changes in security, freedom of movement, identity, and health. 

The anthology will be edited by New Hampshire Poet Laureate Alexandria Peary and will be published by Hobblebush Books in the summer of 2020.

 

HOW TO SUBMIT

Submissions are closed. Those whose poems were accepted for publication have been contacted.

 

GIVING BACK

Hobblebush Books will donate $2 from every book sold to an organization providing relief for the COVID-19 crisis in the New Hampshire.
