My name is Abigael Tripp and I am a student at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, studying Communication Design. My love for creative writing is constantly finding its way into my design work. For my senior thesis project I am creating a poetry anthology that will take the form of an online publication. I am collecting poetry from all around the country as a way to examine the reciprocal relationship between people and place.
I am putting out a call for submissions across the entire country. I was hoping that the Lane Literary Guild may be interested in participating by helping me spread the word about the anthology. For more information you can go to the website:http://www.thisplacepoetry.org. It would be wonderful if you could share the link within your community. Because of the breadth of my project, I am relying heavily on the participation of others.
