Send us your mental health submissions for publication

Time to get writing and send us your creative nonfiction submissions. 

One of our core focus issues is on mental health and mental illness, and we are ready to get uncomfortable and talk about any aspect of living with mental illness. 

Don’t hold back. Give us all the awkward details, like:

  • What kinds of awkward conversations does your mental illness cause you to have, or avoid?
  • What do you wish you could really tell people about your condition?
  • What are some of the myths about mental illness and mental health do you want to kill, lay to rest, and hold a memorial for?
  • How can friends, parents, partners, doctors, or bosses be supportive of people living with mental illness?
  • Why do you think it’s so d#amn hard to talk about mental illness? How can we change that?
  • And anything else that touches on the topic of mental health

Get creative! Submit your creative nonfiction submissions here!

All writers are given their own personal profile page, which features their bio and social media links.
