Snapdragon: A Journal of Art & Healing

As we return to open calls for submissions, we want you to think about 1) Climate Change: How is the environment changing and why? What are we losing? Gaining? How does climate change impact us individually and globally? What can inspire change or conversation? What's your/our relationship to the climate? Show us in your poetry and CNF.

Poetry & Creative Nonfiction: "Climate Change"

Temp Closed
  1. Please send us 1-3 poems (one poem per page) or one CNF piece that is no more than 2,500 words (essay, journal entry, excerpt from a memoir or lager piece).
  2. We read and publish work that is in English only.
  3. We no longer take previously published work so send us what hasn't appeared online or in print.
  4. Work should be 12pt text; set in Courier, Arial, Times New Roman (CNF - double spaced)
  5. We pay attention to craft, ease, beauty, rawness of your writing. Are we inspired, moved? Is it thought provoking, surprising, inviting?
  6. We only take poems within the submission window and via Duosuma through Duotrope (it's free to set up an account).
  7. You will be notified the month following your submission. Feel free to make simultaneous submissions but let us know ASAP if what you sent us is selected elsewhere.
  8. We believe a writer should have full control of their work, so all copyright and publication rights remain with the writer at all times. However, we appreciate exclusive publication rights for three months after the piece has been published by us to ensure maximum impact. And if your piece appears anywhere after that, please acknowledge that it was first published in Snapdragon: A Journal of Art & Healing (or "Snapdragon Journal").

PLEASE NOTE: We will respond late May and select pieces will be published online from June-August 2024.
