Rising Rains Poetry Concerning Hurricane Harvey

Rising Rains Poetry Concerning Hurricane Harvey

Submission Deadline: September 15th, 2017

We've all heard by now the scope of the damage that Texas has endured during Harvey. Relief efforts have been happening all over and the world of poetry is no exception. 

In cooperation with Zero Untitled Productions and Bards Initiative Texas, Local Gems Press is putting together an anthology in a similar fashion to "Songs of Sandy" we put out back in 2013. Poets from the Texas area (and beyond) will submit poems on the subject matter and the proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to Harvey relief (charity to be determined by Texas poets for validity.) 

How to submit:

Submit up to 3 poems 100 lines or less each to:


Include a 3-4 line 3rd person bio with your submission.
Please include the state or country you come from in your subject-line.
lease include poem in the body of the email as well as attached.
Submit files as either an rtf, doc, docx file. 

Note: preference will be given to Texas poets, however there is always room for support from other areas as well.


Deadline: September 15th, 2017!!!

We're having a very quick deadline on this project so we can get the book out and the sales going so the money can go to those who need it.
