Add to the Community Poem

Let’s write a poem together!

You’re invited to submit one line of text answering the question “What makes the Ozarks home for you?”. Once we’ve received everyone’s words, poet Noelia Cerna will combine them into one large community poem that she will record for the Ozark Story Project.

It’s okay if you don’t currently live in the Ozarks. We’re interested in hearing from people that consider the Ozarks home; that means people that have lived here in the past, currently live in the Ozarks, or have a family history here.

No matter how romantic or trying your Ozark experience may be, your contribution matters.
