How Grub Street started their book cover journey

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We're a non-profit creative writing center that helps writers learn the craft of creative expression and navigate the publishing industry.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We need a front and back cover for an anthology featuring creative writing (short stories and poetry) from our summer teen fellowship. This year’s summer teen fellowship brought us another group of twenty talented young writers, who for three weeks made a lively and inspiring presence at GrubStreet Headquarters. This anthology provides a sample of some of the work they created while they were here and will go out to both the teens and donors who fund the program. We'd like the book cover to feel energetic and fun but also convey that this is a serious anthology for serious young writers. We typically aren't attracted to images that make use of "familiar" writing images (pens, paper, people with their heads down writing) and prefer images that use typography in interesting ways. We also like designs that are clean and not too busy. Other than that, this is completely open to your imagination. We're excited to see what you come up with!
The front cover design needs to be 5.5 width X 8.5 height, as does the back cover and it needs to be an InDesign file, preferably creative cloud or CS6.
I'm attaching a previous version of the book cover to show you what we like. We also recently redesigned our main website, so please look at http://www.grubstreet.org to get a sense of our style. I'll attach our logo and our color palette here too--please use these colors if at all possible.
The front cover MUST include the title "Visions of the World" as well as the the following text:
An Anthology from
GrubStreet's 2014 YAWP Summer Teen Fellowship
The back cover should include the GrubStreet logo attached below.
