My Feelings: A Poetry Contest for All
FPMag “My Feelings” Poetry Contest
This poetry contest teaches a healthy coping technique for many of life’s traumas. It’s a coping method for even the very serious problems like PTRS and PTSD.
By the way, if you are writing a poem to someone special, and if you would like us to try and publish your poem on a special day, (like Valentines, maybe?) tell us. We’ll try for you. – Cathy Williams
Do you have writing ability? Would you like your skills to be seen? Writing a poem about “My Feelings” gives you a special opportunity and makes you feel special. This is your moment to be heard. Simply bring your creative and unique poetry talent to us by entering this international contest. Wow. All art is beautiful. May we read your poetry art?
This Contest Teaches a Coping Mechanism for many of life’s problems. Even the very serious ones.
Remember the power of expressing “My Feelings” is a relief for hyperarousal symptoms and for ‘avoidance‘ of fear, sadness and shame. Avoiding these emotions is an unhealthy way of coping. Expressing “My Feelings” through narrative, dramatic or lyrical prose is a very healthy coping method and it can be fun as well as being a release of tensions and stress. Give it a try. Enter the “My Feelings” Poetry Contest.
We are a global, civil society women’s group and we really do care about your feelings.

- space exploration,
- my ideal spaceship,
- my favourite super hero,
- LBGTQ2 and other cool people’s parades,
- world travel I have done,
- food and beverages that I love,
- a monkey’s tricks,
- lovers and other cool people,
- my dancing,
- my long walks,

- anything that enters your beautiful mind.
