Nigel Smith and Martin Pickard
Poets with Parkinson’s believe that art should be expressive and unrestricted. However, we also believe in consideration of other people’s feelings and that this takes precedent over free expression. Whilst we are happy for your poetry contributions to be challenging and thought provoking we would ask that they do not cause emotional harm or distress to others.
We would therefore request that:
your contributions are not obscene, harassing, libellous, slanderous, or otherwise objectionable (as determined by us)
your contributions do not ridicule, mock, disparage, intimidate, or abuse anyone
your contributions do not advocate violence in any form or threaten physical or sexual harm to another
your contributions do not violate the privacy or publicity rights of any third party
your contributions do not in any way promote harming minors
your contributions do not include any comments that are disparaging to any race, national origin, gender, sexual preference, or disability.
We would also ask that your contributions do not contain unsolicited or unauthorized advertising.
Plagiarism is dishonest and we request that you only submit entirely original work written by you.
On occasion, Poets with Parkinson’s may support products produced by its members. We would ask that you do not use it for any commercial endeavours except those that are specifically endorsed or approved by us. Request should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
We aim to create an environment that is free of bullying, harassment, victimisation and promotes dignity and respect for all, and where individual differences and the contributions of all are recognised and valued. We encourage equality, diversity and inclusion. We ask our members to behave in a way that reflects this ethos.
The Site is intended for users who are at least 18 years old. Persons under the age of 18 are not permitted to use or register for the Site.
