Poetry Care Packages from LGBTQ+ Poets for Pride
This June, with Prides worldwide being re-envisioned, the LGBTQ+ Pride Poets of West Hollywood are offering custom "care packages" of poetry written just for you, or for a loved one, about the topic of your choice.
We may not be able to gather this June, but we can still hold space for one another.
After you fill out this form, one of our 2020 cohort of Pride Poets will create an original poem based on your answers and send it to you or the address/email of your choosing!
We'll be writing poems for the FIRST 30 people who submit each week, so get your topic in early and keep submitting if you are not selected! You will receive the completed poem as an image via email. We are sponsored by the City of West Hollywood's One City One Pride grant program ((
), so we reserve spots each week for WeHo-based participants.
Look forward to writing for you!
-Brian Sonia-Wallace and the Pride Poets-

to save your progress.
Your pronouns (he/she/they/etc)
What do you want a poem about? (this can be a topic, like love or boredom or despair, or it can be for someone else, in which case what's their name/relationship to you?)
Tell us a little more about what your topic/person means to you - can you share a specific memory or three?
Where ya from (zip code)? We have support from the City of West Hollywood so reserve some slots for West Hollywood residents.
Where should we send your poem? Either physical address or email address if you prefer just a digital copy!
If you were referred by a Pride Poet and want them specifically to write you your poem, let us know who it is here!
What do the poems look like? Here are a couple examples from when we could meet in person! You'll receive your poem typed on a real typewriter, or a digital copy using the typewriter app.
