Only one entry per contestant is allowed so please send us your very best! Open to participants globally.


Here at Global Genes, We like to spread strength

We do it with ribbons and stories at length

We dive through the research on genetics and rare

And bring you the news that we hope you will share


Although we like stories of clinical trials,

New drugs and treatments that might bring patients smiles

We want to celebrate our readers who write

Empowering words to read as we fight


So this April we’re launching a contest for you

Send us your poems, a sonnet or two,

Our theme for this month is how we “persevere”

You can send in your poems by entering here (link.)
