Oprelle’s Holiday “COMING HOME” Poetry Contest
Deadline: December 20, 2021
What does home look like to you? Is it an old farmhouse, a certain person, a childhood bedroom, a river you run to? Think about when you feel most rooted. Where in the world do you feel most at peace, most yourself? Write a poem that takes us there with you.
A home doesn't have to be a building with four walls. It can be a state of being. We want to know what exactly "home" means to you!
