“Caverns” is an annual collection of poetry written by students in grades 6-8. Volume 1 was published in spring 2018 and is available at Western Kentucky University’s website. Editors will select from submitted poems for publication in Volume 3, which will be published in spring 2020.

Poems must be submitted by teachers or school librarians. The submission deadline is May 15. See guidelines and submit poems on this Google document or email Roxanne Spencer for more information.
