Promoting a Poetry Competition, Volunteer Positions and Career Advice

Often I write only poetry (and occasionally prose) on my blog, but today I am going to be posting something a little different.

First, I will like to announce the Good Morning Bedtime Story (GMBS) international mental health poetry competition is still accepting submissions until April 20th.

To submit, send up to three pieces in .doc or .docx format to: gmbscompetition@gmail.com

Each piece needs to have pertinence towards mental health; needs to be 1.5cm spaced and can be up to 100 lines in length.

Prizes for winning entries include the opportunity to be published in a GMBS anthology or on the GMBS website; books of previously published poems; and certificates.

Moreover, GMBS is still looking for people willing to volunteer their time to assist with this online organization. If you are interested, please send an e-mail to: gmbssubmissions@gmail.com, and explain why mental health matters to you and what ideas you have to further promote the organization. On another note, if you are interested in working as a moderator for the GMBS forum, be sure to express your interest in the e-mail. The forum can be found at the following link: http://gmbs.freeforums.net/

Lastly, for university students in Australia (although there are similar opportunities in other countries), Universum, an organization dedicated to helping students find the right career, is still hosting their short Wet Feet Career Test.

Trying to find the right career is never easy, and yet it is one of the single most important moments of a person’s life. This particular test is designed to make this decision easier by showcasing jobs that share your interests, values and ideas. Participants also have the opportunity to win prizes! So be sure to check it out at the following link:

If you find any of these opportunities interesting, I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors!

I am an online journalist, video game reviewer, mental health advocate and post graduate university student. I am a massive video gaming geek; a lover of intellectual conversations; an award winning procrastinator; a devilishly charming nuisance and the definition of 'fun' (sometimes). My blog is filled with many a soporific love poem, and is simply the beginning in my quest to become a published author. Please stop by and say 'Hi!' (that rhymes!) :D

  1. Oops! Sorry, clicked the like before actually viewing this!

    Right, can actually comment now! Great concept, the competition. I’ve written an entire book of poems relating to mental health – poetry, I believe, is a great way to deal with mental health issues.
