If you have been supported by mental health services at some time, we’d love you to submit writing for our current project. We are looking for poetry or prose up to 1500 words, for a book of collected work. We have no theme as such, but we are always interested in material that shares people’s story.
The final deadline will be mid November but please get in touch with us now so we can read your work and involve you in writing workshops, performances and planning the new book. Each writer will receive two free copies of the book. It will be a development of ‘Warning: May Contain Nuts’ from 2010 and will again be linked to performance, this time on World Mental Health Day, Wednesday 10th October, 6pm, Pavilion Theatre in Brighton. The book will include some material from the performance as well as other wide-ranging contributions.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or listen to a recent interview with Jon Potter for Brighton and Hove Community Radio. The interview covers our current writing for wellbeing project, plus more on why story is important to us, our work at Reading Prison, creativity through song, and Ho’oponopono.
