Readers Share Their Poems: Submission Guidelines

I believe that it is important for trauma survivors to have their voices heard. I encourage survivors, and loved ones of survivors, to email me your poems at

Please let me know if you want me to share your poems on my blog page, or keep them confidential. If you’d like to share your poems with my readers, please let me know what name you would like me to use.

There is no limit to the number of submissions. Please include the name of your country with your submission.

Please copy and paste, or type, your poems in the body of your email, as I will not open email attachments.

Thank you!
