Exploration and Catharsis: Mental Illness and The Awakenings Review
The Awakenings Review is an award-winning literary magazine committed to publishing poetry, short stories, nonfiction, and photography by writers, poets, and artists who have had experience with mental illness: either in themselves, family members, or friends. Located in the Chicago area but international in scope, our print publication is one of the nation’s leading journals of this genre. We’re currently accepting submissions for our Spring 2024 issue. While we are most interested in works of recovery and healing, at The Awakenings Review we are not averse to providing a forum and liberating experience of all manners of work, and a vehicle of insight for our readers. Refer to our submission guidelines at www.AwakeningsProject.org.
