The Greg Grummer Poetry Award was established in honor of Greg Grummer, a George Mason University creative writing alumnus who provided the GMU poetry community with leadership, compassion, and support. The contest affords Phoebe the opportunity to read a diverse selection of poems. The editors of Phoebe thank you for your interest and look forward to reading your work.
