Poetry Call Out: Take Notice

Callout for Poems! 

Are you a budding, or even well-established poet? Health in Mind is looking for poem submissions again this year, inspired by one of the five ways to wellbeing; ‘Take Notice’, following on from last year’s success around the theme of ‘Connect’, you can find out more and order last year’s copy, please email us to request one.

We will have the tricky task of selecting 10 poems to appear in a printed collection for Christmas 2022. Our aim is to uplift and inspire readers, all while helping us raise money for our crucial mental health services via poetry book donations. 

Perhaps since lockdowns have eased, you have noticed some lovely thing now you’re able to get out and about a little more, which could be inspiration for your words. 

Have you taken notice of your thoughts, emotions, and surroundings lately? Taking notice is an excellent way of staying present, boosting your mood or staying grateful for things, what ways do you do this? Pop it down in writing and see what happens! 

We really look forward to reading your entries.  

A few things to note:

  • Poems must be no longer than 40 lines long and you must live in Scotland. 
  • To submit, please complete this survey.  
  • Deadline for entries: Monday 3 October 
  • There is no fee to enter, but if you’d like to make a donation, please do so here.

If you have any questions, we would love to hear from you! Please email us.
