Continuing my topic this week - publishing your creative work on bipolar illness - I have two more publishing forums for you.
The Bellevue Literary Review, published by Bellevue Hospital, is another good place to send your creative work. They publish “unpublished works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that touch upon relationships to the human body, illness, health and healing. [They] encourage creative interpretation of these themes.”
Below are the guidelines for submitting your work:
This magazine is also sponsoring the 2010 Bellevue Literary Review Literary Prizes in Fiction, Nonfiction and Poetry, with an entry deadline of August 1, 2009. This competition pays big money; first prizes for fiction, nonfiction and poetry are $1000.
Finally, my last creative forum this week is themedmagazine.com. I found out about this nifty pub after I wrote my column for Empowher.com about bpmagazine. A reader left me a note saying that I should look into themedmagazine.com.
Now, if you write funny or satirical stuff about being ill (or in recovery) with bipolar illness, themedmagazine.com is the place for you. The med doesn’t pay its writers, but the rewards of being in this online publication are great. This is because the writing in this pub is really sharp, witty and really good.
Here’s the link to themedmagazine:
This little zine publishes laugh-out-loud stories, articles and poems.
So there you have it. Two more places to publish. And you know what they say: Don’t hide your creative work under a bushel basket.
Think about publishing your work today. Your experiences in the form of fiction, poems and/or essays may really benefit others with bipolar illness.
