Be a Migraine Winner

Sharpen your pencils! Ok, limber up your fingers. It's time for the annual headache and Migraine Poetry Contest!

You don't have to be a writer or even a poet to enter. Just writing what you think or feel is sometimes enough to feel better and have others agree with exactly what you wrote about too. This helps bring support and awareness around some of what we go through too.

Poem submission entries started today and have a deadline of midnight, May 4th 2012. Here is an entry form  link you can use to submit your poem. Please don't miss out!

The subject must be headache or Migraine related, but may be metaphoric or abstract and must be your own original work.

This is a fun way to try to get the 'better' of Migraine or headaches. You can show how clever you are or even just be straight forward as you write your poem about Migraine or headache.

You can find a complete set of rules on Help for Headaches & Migraines. Winners will be announced on Friday, June 1, 2012 in observance of National Migraine Awareness Month. The Poetry Contest will be judged by Teri Robert and the Migraine Research Foundation.

Would you like to see some of the prior year entries and winners? There are also links to all of these winners on Help for Headaches & Migraines. Of course everyone who enters is a winner as it really gets you thinking about Migraines and headaches on many different levels and perspectives as we're writing our poems.

Give it a try! Good luck!!

It was my pleasure. At this point, I am curious to see my entry too! :^) I've been working on my poem.
