Mental health poetry contest will use memories of food as a prompt

The NAMI NJ Dara Axelrod Expressive Arts Mental Health Poetry Contest will be based on foods and the memories they evoke. Weave those thoughts into a poem.

 

The poem should keep with the theme; be typewritten in a Word file; be no longer than 40 lines; be accompanied by a media release form; and include a cover letter that includes your name, email address, mailing address and phone number.

 

Contest submission deadline is April 6.

 

Email the entry to poetry@naminj.org. Or, mail typed entries to NAMI NJ Poetry Contest, 1562 Route 130, North Brunswick 08902.

 

Poems will be open to public voting for the Top 10. The Top 3 will win a cash prize and the top poems will also be published on the NAMI NJ website for others to read.
