Waterford Healing Arts Trust would like you to pause for a moment and think is there a poem or piece of prose you turn to when you want to be cheered up or soothed or generally feel better?

Rudyard Kipling said, ‘words are… the most powerful drug used by mankind’. With this in mind share your pick-me-up pieces of poetry and prose.

E-mail your chosen poem or piece of prose (200 words) to WHAT@hse.ie by Friday 4 October with ‘earthquake’ in the subject line. Tell us who the author is and why you picked it.

Actress Linda Gough and some contributors will read a selection of the submissions at a free public reading in The Book Centre, Waterford on Friday 11 October at 6.30pm.

This event is part of ‘Well’, a festival of arts and wellbeing run jointly by Waterford Healing Arts Trust and Garter Lane. The festival will run from October 7 – 12. For more information see www.waterfordhealingarts.com or www.facebook.com/wellfestivalartswellbeing.com
