Open Call: Poetry Anthology

Is poetry epic? It can be!


We can create a range of emotions by just the flick of a pen. Why don’t you try your hand at writing some poems about body positivity and submitting them to The White House? Who knows, maybe you’ll end up in our poetry anthology, made by Dungeons and Dagenham, a youth group at The White House. Our anthology is specifically aimed towards young LGBTQ+ people aged 15-30. Even if you are not among that community, you are still welcome to submit a poem.


Submissions have to be in by 14 August and don’t worry, it’s free to sign up.


Even if you haven’t done anything poet related in the past, that’s good too, we are open to all poetry experience. But not too long - 1 page is the limit.


If you want to contact us with more questions, please email
