Your submission should focus on the theme of domestic violence and must be your own work.

Poetry or artwork of all types are accepted and submissions are DUE by April 1, 2014. ONLY one submission will be accepted per person.

Please submit your work to your caseworker, probation/parole agent, counselor, or you can mail it to:

Submissions will be honored and displayed at the conference.

The committee will select 3 submissions from each category (visual &written) that will each receive a $50 honorarium. Please include your name, address, phone number (or a person at your facility we can contact as your representative) so that we may return your items and/or send the honorarium. Winners will be invited to attend the conference at no cost if they are available to do so.
