Discover the Heart and Soul of Wilkes County: Pre-order Voices of Home Book Today!

Voices of Home Poetry Project

Do you write poetry or short stories?

Do you make art or take photography?

We are looking for submissions from Wilkes County residents to bind into a book.

If you or someone you know are interested, please be on the lookout for how to submit!

Once finished, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to a literacy non-profit (still to be determined).

  • Poems

    Peoms can be about anything and be in any format! We would even love for handwritten submission!

  • Short Stories

    Shorts stories can be about anything too! We do ask that you limit your story to 500 words.

  • Art or Photography

    We would love to include scans of paintings, drawings, or other pieces of art. Photography will also be accepted! Space will be limited for visual art.
