The Awakenings Review is an annual lit mag committed to publishing poetry, short story, nonfiction, photography, and art by writers, poets and artists who have a relationship with mental illness: either self, family member, or friend. Our striking hardcopy publication is one of the nation’s leading journals of this genre. Creative endeavors and mental illness have long had a close association. The Awakenings Review publishes works derived from artists’, writers’, and poets’ experiences with mental illness, though mental illness need not be the subject of your work. Visit www.AwakeningsProject.org for submission guidelines. Check out our latest issue featuring work from Lora Keller, Cornelia A. Blair, Jennifer Fulco, Judith Levison, Jacalyn Shelley, Janet Garber, Aden Ross, Shao Wei, Fred Yannantuono, Jean Tucker, Alan Sugar, and more.
