Mental Snapback Podcast is looking for your mental health recovery stories to be featured in our episodes. This podcast is for everyone and anyone who has experienced mental illness, whether it be that you have experienced acute or chronic illnesses yourself or someone you love has experienced them. We know the struggle, and we don't want to invalidate that. However, we want to hear about the other side—the recovery of your struggles—to build a foundation of hope for whoever may need it. Currently, we only accept creative nonfiction in the form of essays. Acceptance of manuscripts occurs on a rolling basis, and they will be read aloud on weekly podcast episodes. mentalsnapback.com/submission-guidelines/
COVID LIT is a monthly online lit mag that gives the middle finger to COVID-19 by publishing, promoting, and spreading art, poetry, and prose using the disease's name. What sets us apart from other magazines? Simple: instead of paying us a submission fee, writers must donate at least $3 to a nonprofit of their choice. Since we launched in late April 2020, our writers have donated over $3000 directly to regional, national, and international nonprofits, so send your best work and use your creative superpowers for good!
