Roots and Resettlement

What memories, stories, visions, and hopes are evoked when we think of our roots in the context of our mobility and/or resettlement? What impact does place have on our sense of belonging?Where do we belong? How do we belong?

We seek creative and thoughtful submissions to feature in a mixed-media book about displacement, resettlement, place, and belonging. One notable submission will receive a cash prize of $500 and the cover feature. Open to all students, staff, and faculty. 

Submissions may include poems, songs, visual art, flash white papers, flash fiction, creative non-fiction, and scholarly statements. (Please keep text submissions under 50 words.) Email copy of submission to hke@vt.edu. Please put “Roots and Resettlement Submission” in the subject line.

Deadline: April 1, 2020

The event is sponsored by the Center for Rhetoric in Society and the In Place podcast team.
