About

Vitamin ZZZ is SleepyHeadCENTRAL’s literary effort to spread awareness about All Things Sleep: sleep health, sleep disorders, sleep medicine, sleep hygiene, and much more. We are always open to reviewing non-themed, general submissions. Often, we base upcoming themes on patterns we see in our "slush" pile. We are especially interested in prose poems, flash fiction, personal essay, hybrid work, and creative nonfiction, so if this is your jam, send it our way! Finally, all insights are sought, from either a healthcare worker’s or patient’s or loved one's perspective: humorous, clinical, personal, spiritual, political, fantastic, familial, experimental, even confessional.

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.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
