In the time of uncertainty and anxiety, poetry brings us hope, inspiration, and reflection. Have you been reading or writing poems in the pandemic? Do you want to share the lines you've read or written with the Amherst community? If the consoling and unifying power of poetry is forgotten in ordinary times, it is becoming ever more influential and desirable in trying times. Please help us lead a poetic life to overcome the difficult circumstances.
We plan to compile all submissions into an anthology titled "Amherst Poetry in the Pandemic". It will be divided into two sections. Section I includes the creative writing of the Amherst community. Section II puts different submissions that are not written by the Amherst community in conversation with one another. Either way, we hope to document the pandemic in poetry.
You can fill this form out as many times as you want. It will automatically document your email address so we know who these submissions come from. We also ask if you own the copyright of the poems and would like us to publish your lines and your name if you write the lines.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach Haoran Tong '23, organizer of the project at email@example.com
