I hate to break your Asian-verse-loving hearts, but I'm not going to do any haikus today. I've beat this dead horse a few times. Once here in a thread at TuDiabetes and again here on my blog during last year's HAWMC challenge.
But in keeping with the prompt for today, I'm definitely going to talk poetry.
In 2009, the Diabetes Hands Foundation (the nonprofit that runs TuDiabetes and EsTuDiabetes) sponsored an awareness initiative in the form of a poetry contest called "No Sugar Added Poetry."
Over the course of four weeks, we selected submissions that best told the stories of how our members' lives had been touched by diabetes. And then, in 2010, we published a book with the winning entries.
Well, we're doing it again.
This year's contest submission period begins today, Friday, April 6, and ends April 27, 2012. As before, there will be prizes for the weekly winners and the possibility of another publication.
Send us a little
You could be published!
(see what I did there?)
