"Stories of Home"

An essay and poetry contest in partnership with Richmond Metropolitan Habitat for Humanity

The importance of having safe, stable shelter has taken on even more meaning since March. Please share in an up-to-400-word essay or up-to-30-line poem what you've discovered or rediscovered about a space in your house since shelter-in-place began. 

The winning poem and essay will be published in Richmond magazine's R•Home in July, and the winners also will have the opportunity to participate in a virtual  Richmond Metropolitan Habitat for Humanity "Reflections of Home" event on Wednesday, June 24. The winners will each receive a $100 gift card to the Habitat ReStore.

Deadline to enter: Friday, May 29
