It's that time of the year again! It is time to enter the fun, annual poetry contest that Teri Robert has been holding since 2001.
This really is an exciting activity to go through. It can stretch your mind about things you never really took the time to stop and think about. Some people get very creative with their entries, but you don't need to and can be very straight forward with your poem.
You have nothing to lose by entering the contest and so much more to gain from looking inside of yourself or seeing what others have written and it's another way we have to support each other. I was also pleasantly surprised and touched last year when I received an honorable mention for my submission. If I can do it, so can you!
The official rules can be found on Putting our Heads Together Poetry Contest, 2011 rules. At the bottom of the rules page, you can find a link to the 2011 poetry contest entry form.
Why a poetry contest and what have others written about in the past? If you'd like to get the answers to these questions and see past entries and winning entries, they can be found on the Help for Headaches and Migraines site on the Poetry tab. Check it out!
I hope you get your entry in as I can't wait to see all of the entries. Have fun writing your poem, follow the rules and don't forget to submit your poem by midnight on the Ides of March; that's Tuesday, March 15th!
