Grounded by Thomas Earl Allen

Diversion Press presents Grounded

GROUNDED is the realistic portrayal of a boy who reads comic books, plays video games, vandalizes, chooses bad friends, breaks school rules, and frustrates his well-meaning parents. But GROUNDED is also not moralistic, nor is it a case study of a highly disturbed child. Instead, the main character's main challenge is to mature in a world filled with opportunities to make unwise choices—the same struggle that most young people face. GROUNDED examines Donny's decisions, but also the consequences of the decisions made by the adults around him.

Poetry under review

Dear Poets,

Not only are we still accepting poetry, but we are still reviewing poetry.  Every poet who submits to us will get a letter informing them of acceptance or rejection.  We are excited to have had so many entries for this anthology and hope to have all poets notified as soon as possible.

If you have any questions about the poetry anthology, feel free to contact us.
