A crosscurrent is a conflicting tendency or movement or turbulent stretch. The Just Write Virtual Writing Group chose to name our 2023 poetry anthology Crosscurrent because it seemed such an apt description for the content and tone of our poetry as well as the times that inspired them.

The order of our poems in this collection has been carefully curated to take our readers on a journey that we hope you will enjoy!

We offer up our collection of 26 poems for your writing inspiration or you can choose to simply write about the crosscurrents of your life.
