About

Hello and welcome to Inside The Bell Jar, a literary journal dedicated to providing an honest insight into the complexity of mental illness. Inside The Bell Jar intends to bring together a collection of hand-picked writers, whose stories and poems tell of the darkness in which they are living. Our authors and poets may have a direct link to a mental illness (either because of their own struggles or those of a family member), or at the very least show a deep, unique and compassionate understanding of what it means to live inside a bell jar.

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. Just remember…

  • 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.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
