COVID-19 has expanded the common definition of the word loss. Instead of just loss in death, it now commonly means loss of security in employment, of being able to celebrate a life that was lost, visiting a sick loved one, enjoying old freedoms, routines, etc. Poems should discuss how any of these factors of any kind of loss at any time in your life has impacted you.

Feel free to express the pain, but also feel welcome to share any light or lessons that have come out of these experiences. We encourage creative submissions.

First Prize: $100
Second Prize: $75
Third Prize: $50
