We Grow Anyway - 2019

We are pleased to announce the second edition of We Grow Anyway, an anthology on queer love, growth, and survival.  Our first book, We Grow Anyway, was such a success that we’ve decided to make it an annual anthology. 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 for odes 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.

Contributors: Lex Byrd, Arianna Monet, Aly Richardson, M. McDonough, Lu Teed, Nikki Burian, Oliver Schminkey, Laurie Works, Sarah Evins, April Penn, Elliott Jouza, Charissa Lucille, Sisary Poemape, Kaleena Kovach, Julien Parry, Charlie Oak, Avery Potter, Mackenzie Boyer, Nico Wilkinson, Joy Young
