About

Snapdragon: A Journal of Art & Healing is an international online literary journal for writers, artists, and all who are looking to creativity as a way to explore the healing journey. We publish poetry, creative nonfiction, and poetry -- with a healing bent -- from those across the globe, and promote the work of our contributors. Women-run, we also have a blog that features "everyday people" who use art for personal and/or community healing.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
