An Invitation to Participated in the Touched By Poetry Series: Parkinson's Disease
Have you been touched by Parkinson's disease? Here is an opportunity to share your story, wisdom, and experiences in poetic form. You don't have to consider yourself a poet. You do have to be willing to try something new and share your insights.
This book was created to enable people to share their story, imagine ways to move through life, and to provide a healing journey for the brain.
To participate send three poems and a two sentence bio with a url or link to your website (if you want) in an attached Word document to TouchedByPoetry@gmail.com
Twenty-five entries will be chosen for inclusion in the book entitled: Touched By Parkinson's, a Healing Journey Through Poetry to be published on Amazon. Another 50-60 participants will have one of their poems featured in the book to be edited by Kimberly Burnham and published by Inner Child Press.
This anthology is open to anyone who has Parkinson's disease, has a family member or friend with Parkinson's, works with people with Parkinson's or has in some way been touched by Parkinson's disease and wants to contribute their story and inspiration.
There is interesting research on the healing benefits of sharing your story, listening to other people with a similar condition and read the images a writer can create with poetry. Below are some poetry prompts, ideas, and some of the research that will be featured in the book.
Other topics being considered for future books in the Touched by Poetry series include: Multiple Sclerosis, Macular Degeneration, Down Syndrome, Huntington's Ataxia, Diabetes, Arthritis / Joint Pain, Osteoporosis, Autism, Breast Cancer, Addictions, Strokes / Heart Attack, Aids / HIV, and ... YOU can suggest a future topic if you would like.
Deadline is March 10, 2018 for entry.
