Create | Encounter exists to illustrate the inherent dignity of each human being by sharing creative narratives through poetry, prose, and visual art.
We engage the grassroots community through an open call for submissions, promote education on issues of human dignity through an annual compilation of creative works, and stimulate discourse on these issues through a corresponding release event.
View the winners of the past submissions below, in the 2017, 2018, and 2019 special Create | Encounter editions of Life Matters Journal.
