    I tried to submit a poem for the poetry contest. The problem is after I have posted my poem and pushed the send button, the response was that the security code was incorrect. I do not know but the instruction is not user friendly. On top of the SEND button, there is Different Images. On top of these there are letters where I do not know where to place as there is no box where which to write them. Please help me.

    i could not really find appreciable efforts to encourage poets from countries other than U.S and U.K. hailing from india all i could find on the internet was a dissapointing comment from a fellow poet that publishers dont want to print poems as they dont sell..! ! !

    Hippocrates Prize for Poetry and Medicine

    The Hippocrates Prize for Poetry and Medicine was founded in 2009 by Donald Singer, a clinical professor, and poet and translator Michael Hulse. The founders 'wished to draw together national and international perspectives on three major historical and contemporary themes uniting the disciplines of poetry and medicine: medicine as inspiration for the writings of poets; effects of poetic creativity on the experience of illness by patients, their families, friends, and carers; and poetry as therapy. There are two awards: one for UK health students and National Health Service-related professionals, including educators, researchers, and biomedical scientists, and a second one, the International Hippocrates Prize for Poetry and Medicine, for an international open category for unpublished poems in English by any living poet. The Hippocrates poetry and medicine initiative was short-listed in the 2011 Times Higher Education awards for Excellence and Innovation. This award aims to recognise the collaborative and interdisciplinary work that is taking place in universities to promote the arts. Entries were open to teams from all higher education institutions in the UK.


    Founding judges were
