We Grow Anyway

We are pleased to present our first book, We Grow Anyway, an anthology on queer love, growth, and survival.  We asked queer poets to submit the work that sustains them, because that's what we need in our own lives right now-- to capture growth, beauty and celebration. We asked fodes to your body, love poems to your best friend, to your found family, to the love(s) of your life...whatever brightness can be found in our darkest hours. What grew is an incredible collection about love, struggle, and growth.
