Meet the challenge: charity anthology to raise disabilities awareness
A fund-raising project in the north-west called Unique Driven Determined is planning an anthology of poetry about human differences and qualities, disabilities and impairments - and how people deal with these challenges. All poems accepted will appear in an anthology due to be published by N Press at the end of summer of beginning or autumn of 2012.
All submitted poems - of up to 40 lines - may have been published previously and may be submitted simultaneously for consideration elsewhere. The deadline is 31 May and successful entries should be announced by the beginning of July 2012. Please send all material to either to Katy Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org or Andy N at email@example.com
All proceeds will be donated to Tameside-based charities – the Park Café Bailey Hall, Hyde, which provides work-based training opportunities for people with learning disabilities and Pennine Independent Voice, a new, independent action group offering self-help for people who care for or who experience mental health issues in the Tameside community.
