Migraine Contest

It's that time of the year again!  It's time for the annual Migraine Poetry contest. Wait!  No experience is necessary.  You could have never written a poem before and still be a winner.

There are many ways to win, but the most important way you can win is that by writing a poem you can express your take around Migraines. It can be from your own experiences, things you have observed around Migraines, about being a caregiver - really anything to do with Migraines and Headaches.

There are a few ground rules which can be found on the Putting Our Heads Together Poetry  Contest page. Here are some of the basics:
  • Subject must be headache or Migraine related, but may be metaphoric or abstract.
  • Form: Rhymed, free-verse, any form of poetry, but not prose.
  • Length: Maximum of 60 lines, no more than 80 characters per line (including spaces and punctuation).
  • "Family-friendly" language required. No profanity or other potentially offensive language.
  • Deadline: Midnight, Friday, May 24, 2013. Submissions received after this date will be deleted.
  • All poems must be written in English.
  • Entries must be presented complete with spacing, punctuation, and correct spelling. Do not enter in all caps. We cannot retype entries.
  • ALL entries must be made via the online submission form. No exceptions.  
  • See Putting Our Heads Together for the complete set of rules
The winners will be announced and the poetry published on Putting Our Heads Together the first week of June, 2013, in observance of National Migraine and Headache Aware Month.

Join the fun!  Enter your poem by midnight, Friday, May 24, 2013.

Good luck!
