Alt Minds Literary Magazine is looking for “…fiction and non-fiction/memoir (1,000 to 3,000) of any genre and poetry (no more than 40 lines) that is related to mental health, in theme, subject matter, characterization, whatever “mental health” means to you.” Unlike many new journals, this is a paying journal with a very narrow audience: writing with themes related to mental health.
Furtheremore, the editor and founder is brave to state she wished to create “…a literary magazine that focuses exclusively on content about mental health and all the idiosyncrasies that come along in living with mental illness.” That’s brave.
I’ve submitted two poems there; one is about a competency hearing and one is about drives–literal and metaphorical.
I’m still very pleased and surprised to find so many literary journals–seems to be something for everyone.
Thanks for reading!
