Head Lines

Head Lines NZ is a ‘Promoting Mental Health Project’ in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The aim of the project is to provide a personal resource for those of us affected by mental health challenges and see our efforts in print.

Poetry submissions are open to New Zealanders from all over the world who have had lived experiences coping with mental health challenges at some stage in your life.

That pretty much covers everyone!

All authors retain full copyright of their poetry, and Head Lines NZ reserves the right to re-publish in print or online for Anthologies and/or special project publications ie: Anniversary Anthologies.

Contributors are encouraged to engage with each other, read, like, share and/or comment to build your own network of like minded people in order to build friendships, real or online and further support your healing.

If you want to submit your poetry to other publications in print, E-zines, Magazines, Journals etc, you must first inform them that your poem/s have been first published by Head Lines NZ, link to Head Lines NZ and reference appropriately in print or online.

Our aim is to secure funding for hard-copy Anthologies and showcase a collection of the best poems/poets of Head Lines NZ, promoting mental health in New Zealand.

If you are in a position to fund this project, or are in a position to provide Head Lines NZ with resources on who/where/how to apply for funding or you are a billionaire philanthropist, we accept grants and donations to make printing a success. Please contact:

Your support will be much appreciated and serve to further promote mental health awareness in New Zealand. If I have to become a Charitable Trust to do it, then that is what I will do.

    What a great forum for people to meet and share and know that we all have some common ground. This is very cool. Please let me know if I can help. Happy to be an advocate for this site.

      Thank you! I appreciate your support for the project. What would help is exposure and connections to the people in the know. If you could share on your social networks and link, that would be a great start! I am personally having trouble trying to change my name ‘Jodine’ as publisher as it looks wrong. I need it to be Head Lines NZ or something that doesn’t link to me to give more respect to the contributors. I wouldn’t have a clue! I’m all linked up on Gravitar and not so savvy on my Android. Thank you very much beautiful Kereru. Jx

        Will offer you mountains of moral support but no technical expertise I’m afraid. This is such a good thing you’re doing. Very excited to have found you and to be able to share in this. These people write beautiful poetry 🙂
