We publish biannual anthologies (June/Nov) of poetry & art that focus on mental health awareness through the theme of monsters and the supernatural. We have two submissions windows per year and no entry fees. All work remains your own. Simultaneous submissions, previously published work, and work published on Instagram are accepted.
You may submit up to 3 poems, 3 pieces of artwork, and/or 2 pages of flash fiction/non-fiction that represent your experience with mental health challenges, no matter how scary or hopeless. We want to give a voice to the struggles we all deal with. Of course, hopeful and healing pieces are welcome, too!
Please include YOUR NAME in the file name (PDF or Word Doc). Include a 50-100 word first person bio and short paragraph on why you are submitting to us as an attachment or in the email body.
Our staff works on a volunteer basis, so we cannot offer payment at this time; however, contributors receive a free digital copy and the opportunity to purchase one print copy at cost. In addition, 10% of all book sales are donated to a mental health non-profit.
To get an idea of what kind of work we like, check out our first anthology, published Nov ‘21.
We can’t wait to read your work! Thank you for submitting!
