Poetry & Prose Celebration

Hosted/judged in part by Cville Pride

Students from the City of Charlottesville as well as Albemarle, Greene, Fluvanna, Louisa, and Nelson counties in grades 5-8 and 9-12 are invited to submit their poetry and prose on any topic.

Deadline: February 15, 2017.

Plus, the inaugural Cville Pride Award in the Poetry & Prose Contest will recognize student writers who embrace topics and/or perspectives that are relevant to the LGBTQ+ community. These may range from discussions of identity and selfhood, to explorations of sexuality, gender, and/or the process of coming out.
