Slam Poetry and Art Unite for ME/CFS

LAWRENCE, N.Y., January 16, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Lev Leytzan: The Heart of Therapeutic Clowning Inc. and Open Medicine Foundation (OMF) are excited to announce that they are joining together to create "Hearts and Hope United" -- their first poetry and art slam.

Words and art have power. Those with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) are invited, along with any would-be poets and artists among friends and family, to compose a slam poem or artistic piece based on their journey with ME/CFS. "Hearts and Hope United" is an opportunity to share individual experiences with ME/CFS while inspiring others. Submissions should cultivate messages of hope and positivity. Artists may use a “pen name” if they prefer to remain anonymous. Inspiring and creative submissions will be made available at omf.ngoand on social media.

“We are eager to hear your voice and allow the ME/CFS community to join in solidarity for inspiration and to build more awareness about the challenges that everyone is facing,” said Dr. Neal C. Goldberg, executive director of Lev Leytzan. Marilyn Simon-Gersuk, Open Medicine Foundation's director of communications and development, said, “OMF is leading research and delivering hope to end ME/CFS and we welcome the creativity of people affected by ME/CFS and their community to inspire hope through this Poetry and Art Slam."

From Jan. 3–Feb. 3, 2019, submissions can be submitted to www.omf.ngo/poetry/. Upon review, entries will be hosted on OMF’s webpage (omf.ngo/poetry-submission) to be enjoyed by all. Those with ME/CFS are encouraged to invite family, friends and medical team members to check the site regularly for inspiration.

A poem from both the youth and adult category will be selected and set to music to be released and performed in May during the May Momentum program.

To submit poems or artwork, visit https://www.omf.ngo/poetry-form/.
