Virginia is known for beginnings. As one of the original 13 colonies and the birthplace to more presidents than any other state, it’s secured a place in history. From the pastoral Shenandoah Valley to the busy high-tech and government center in the north, Virginia perfectly unites history and modernity and inspires words like few places can. And in Virginia’s Best Emerging Poets 2019, 43 up-and-coming poets, including J.S. Campbell, have the chance to share their own words. Covering a wide array of topics ranging from love and heartbreak, family and friendship, the inherent beauty of nature, and so much more, these previously unknown young talents will amaze you. Containing one poem per poet, this anthology is a compelling introduction to the great wordsmiths of tomorrow.
