Midweek Mental Greening

If you’re interested in the connection between the environment and your mental health – and you enjoy writing or creating art – here’s a treat for you:

The Mental Health Association in Tompkins County, New York, is seeking submissions for its Summer 2009 issue of States of Mind, “Nature as Nurture: Mental Health and the Environment,” and if you don’t live in New York, don’t fret – I was fortunate enough to email with with States of Mind Editor Celia Smith who assured me the call for submissions is open to all interested parties; however, available slots are filling up fast and inclusion will be highly selective.

Plus, the deadline is…

….tomorrow! July 1, 2009!

Sounds like a challenge!

Acceptable entries include artwork (in a reproducible format that will translate well into a black-and-white format) and poems, stories, and personal accounts (between 700-1,000 words long) and you can submit them in one of three ways:

  1. Via email to info@mhaedu.org. Note that you can either paste your poem, story, or personal account directly into the email or attach it as a .doc or .rtf format only.
  2. Mail your entry to: Mental Health Association, Attn: Editor, States of Mind, 614 W. State Street, Ithaca, NY 14850.
  3. Hand deliver your entry to the same address (which Ms. Smith points out is the best method for artwork).

If this deadline’s too soon for you, or you aren’t into writing or art, you can still benefit from others’ work. The completed issues should be printed in August and you can send a formal request for one along with $1.10 to cover postage to the address above.

Good luck to all who enter!
